“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[1], 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 actually run by Snufits. They are shown without lower bodies in their icons, and additionally lack the black masks Snifits usually wear. The naming inconsistency is likely due to both Snifits and Snufits having the same Japanese name at the time, resulting in an overlooked translation. In Mario Party Superstars, the Snifit Patrol is instead run by Snifits.[2]
