- “Eh? You don't have 5 Coins? Umm...I just remembered, I...need to investigate something.”
- —Snifit Patrol, Mario Party 2
The Snifit Patrol, also referred to as Shy Guy Cops, is the police force of Space Land in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party Superstars. Players can pay them to set up a "speed trap" when they come across a unit standing by. They chase after speeding Whomps and Thwomps to ensure the safety of the players playing on the board when a player lands on a Happening Space; when a speed trap is set, the chase lasts longer.
In Mario Party 2, the Snifit Patrol is specifically run by the Snifits from Super Mario 64; they are shown without lower bodies in their icons, and additionally lack the black masks Snifits usually wear. In Mario Party Superstars, the Snifit Patrol is instead run by typical Snifits.

- Barton, Jeff, Mario De Govia, Tri Pham, and Donato Tica. Mario Party 2 Prima's Official Strategy Guide. Page 34. "The two police stations play off the Happening Spaces. When you cross a police station, the player may spend 5 Coins to set a speed trap. This sends a Shy Guy Cop after a speeding Block, pushing you even farther along the path."
