Psycho-Pass is set in a futuristic era in Japan where the Sibyl System (シビュラシステム), a powerful network of psychometric scanners, actively measures the minds and mentalities of civilised populations using a “cymatic scan” of the brain.
The resulting assessment is called a Psycho-Pass (サイコパス). When the calculated likelihood of an individual committing a crime, measured by the Crime Coefficient (犯罪係数) index, exceeds an accepted threshold, he or she is pursued, apprehended, and killed if necessary by police forces.
Elite officers labelled “Enforcers” are equipped with large handguns called “Dominators”—special weapons that only activate when aimed at suspects with higher-than-acceptable Crime Coefficients. Enforcers are themselves selected for innately high Crime Coefficients, marking them as “latent criminals”; they are overseen by police Inspectors, who have the jurisdiction to shoot them with their Dominators should they pose a danger to the public.
