The Anti-Personnel Control Squad (対人制圧部隊 Taijin Seiatsu Butai?)[1] was an elite squad led by Kenny Ackermann and was part of the Interior Military Police. Its members were highly competent and were equipped with Anti-Personnel omni-directional mobility gear. They worked for Rod Reiss.


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was officially created to oppose the Scout Regiment; however, that was a false justification given by Kenny Ackermann so that the Assembly would give their approval. Their true purpose was the pursuit of Captain Kenny Ackermann's dream, specifically to obtain the God-like power possessed by the Reiss family.

All soldiers under Kenny's command were aware of their captain's true goal and were loyal to him rather than the government.[2]


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was a relatively large unit, numbering forty-eight soldiers, including Captain Kenny Ackermann. As a subdivision of the Interior Military Police, they did not officially report to anyone, but in practice, they took orders from the Assembly and Rod Reiss.[citation needed]


Soldiers in the Anti-Personnel Control Squad were members of the Military Police Regiment who chose to join Kenny in the Interior Police.[1] All were capable of using Anti-Personnel omni-directional mobility gear, which was developed in secret without the public's knowledge or that of the regular Military Police.[3]

As a unit they were one of the most capable in the military, being able to catch veteran Scouts unaware[4] and force Levi Ackermann to withdraw his squad from their rescue operation.[5]

Its members appeared to be cynical, feeling that their lives have been without meaning, but by following Kenny, they might be able to discover what they were missing.[1]


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was assembled by Kenny Ackermann two years after the Fall of Wall Maria and he was placed in charge despite having no prior military experience. Caven suspected the reason for the squad's creation was that humanity had given up on fighting the Titans so now they would fight over what land was left.

Kenny took a shine to Caven's nihilism and shared his derisive feelings for the members of the Assembly as well as how much work it took to get them to buy into the squad's creation. He then shared his true goal with his new unit, to obtain "power rivaling a god."[2]
