"Securing your world." - The motto of the PK corporation
Pirandello/Kruger, or PK for short, is a private security corporation in Mirror's Edge.
Not necessarily a law enforcement agency, they have provided more powerful personnel at times when the City Protection Force cannot use their own forces or the situational risk may be too high for normal officers.

By the time of the Mirror’s Edge game the city’s primary law enforcement, the City Protection Force, had come under threat of being taken over by the Pirandello Kruger security force for being the primary policing force in the city. Pirandello Kruger was also involved in creating a specialized law enforcement program to combat the Runners network. Known as Project Icarus, the program was supported by the likes of Travis Burfield of Burfield Shipping and Mayor Callaghan, who also ran Callaghan City Construction, however the program also met resistance from people such as Mayoral candidate, Robert Pope of Robert Pope & Associates. This led to Pope’s assassination and the frame-up of CPF Officer Kate Connors, who’s vindication would assist in PK’s take-over of the CPF. The incident indeed forced the CPF to work alongside Pirandello Kruger forces in an attempt to catch fugitives such as Kate’s sister, Faith Connors, who had discovered both the assassination plot and project Icarus.

Mirror's Edge 2Edit
In the trailer of new Mirror's Edge game you can see "ERT-2 KrugerSec" text on the left arm of enemies.
- EA games temporarily hosted a mock website for Pirandello/Kruger that featured image files that, when viewed through a text program, revealed secret messages from Faith Connors.
- The website’s source code also features the message: “They’ve found us. Stay off the wires. Exif only.”
- The frequency “88.7” can also be found written within the source code.
- "PK" is a online game-generated acronym meaning "Player Killer", which are players that kill other players' characters. Given Pirandello Kruger forces are occasionally referred to as "PKs," this may be an intentional reference.
- "PK" may also be a reference to parkour, the movement technique practised by the Runners.
