An easily destroyed asset. If the runner is running heavy link he'll just trash it, if not… then who gives a crap, either way, it'll make one trace attempt easier for the corp then, splat.

Even for one trace, though, it would be worth it. I've played beanstalk royalties or hedge fund before a trace to make sure it goes through, That the runner needs to spend an action and a credit (more if it is behind any ice) is icing on the cake.
Alternatively, since you're NBN that has a crapload of awesome assets and upgrades (Red Herrings, anyone?), just use 3 influence to pack Encryption Protocol and watch those trash costs skyrocket :)

Synergizes well with Ash 2X3ZB9CY. Ash's trace is strengthened by Net Police, making it a lot more difficult to get to. Don't forget that they stack, so 2 copies of Net Police will make the runner's link actively work against them.

One question I have regarding the X number of recurring credits on this card. Does X remain the number of link the runner had when Net Police was installed, or does it change as the runner's link changes? I assume the former, and it is the more interesting of the two.

On a side note, I always thought the plural was 'link' not 'links' in the context of the game. Links' sounds funny to me.
I would assume for ease it would be the number of link the runner has at that point, saves trying to remember how many they had 6 turns ago, I rather like this and will have to find a way of squeezing it into my decks somehow. Running 2 in low ice remotes means they are not running my agendas, and if they ignore them them more of my traces work, on to a winner really.
Recurring credits refresh at 2 moments, when played/rezzed and at the beginning of the owner's turn
I think the joke is that this card "back traces" them...

Hold on... is the referring to link as in Link Strength, or is it referring to Links (note the plural) as in the Resource?

link strenght

Hold on... is the referring to link as in Link Strength, or is it referring to Links (note the plural) as in the Resource?

If a text refers to keywords such as the resources, they are always printed bold.
For example Foxfire. This refers to the keyword and not to the linkstrength.
