I thought the models with the shields were Arbites as well, but I stand corrected. Weird thing about their slotta tab though is that it's labeled Fanatic and not Enforcer or Arbites.
That was the old Fanatic 'department', the old Specialist Games. I do recall them going to lengths to emphasise that these models were meant to represent Enforcers, not proper Arbites, hence their delving into the underhive instead of doing the planetary-level stuff you. Their dress was explained as basically imitation and there was stuff about them getting their fancy Judge Dredd-style ammo only on sufferance.
I would agree that Andy Hoare and crew do seem to be taking that further and making them more blatantly the well-equipped bully boys of the deeply corrupt hive leadership. "Just another gang" and all that.
