Gol D. Roger said that one piece treasure is there and anyone can claim it due to which it started the "Great Age of Pirates." After that moment, every pirate set sail to find that treasure and that's how everyone began to explore so many things. During this adventure many fights began and many incidents happened.

Since Marine are the military sea forces and their duty is to maintain law and order. But then I was wondering that:

Are they also trying to find one piece so that they can stop this chaos of finding one piece.

    Well, it's not impossible. But to the best of my knowledge, there is nothing saying/hinting that this is the case.

Before I begin to answer please let me state that I only watch the anime, I do not read the manga which is far ahead of the anime.

So the short answer is yes it is a possibility, however the likelihood I believe is very doubtful.

Gol D. Roger started the infamous age of pirates by saying his treasure was up for the taking and ever since then the military has been falling all over themselves trying to round up those pirates; it got to be so bad that they had to recognize some of the stronger pirate groups as "Warlords" who they would not go after for the piracy crimes in exchange for the Warlord pirate group to take care of the lower class pirates running rampant. Admiral Fujitora is personally against the notion of allowing the stronger pirates such as Don Quixote being allowed to do whatever they please and he wants to bring an end to the entire Warlord system.

The show is centered around the Straw Hat Pirates who have taken the world by surprise time and time again for how rowdy and badass they are. They went from defeating a small marine base to taking on the warlords, they went from warlords to storming Enis Lobby and giving a middle finger to the world government, and is if that wasn't bad enough they then took on the Celestial dragons who are considered gods compared to everyone else and then Luffy went and broke into and out of Impel down which just pub stomped the Marines reputation for being able to control the order. The straw hat pirates have made the warlords, the world government, and the pirate emperors their enemies, it is quite literally them vs the entire world.

The government is so busy trying to regain their diminishing reputation that they cant afford to waste time looking for pirate treasure. Remember the war of the great? Remember Whitebeard's last words? Whitebeard reminded everyone that One Piece exists to spark the flame once again because the government refuses to accept One Piece even exists. Imagine the government turning up with One Piece after all of this, it would bring humiliation on them; they would much prefer One Piece never be found and people losing faith in its existence as to make people lose interest in being pirates because the second they get One Piece and word gets out it'll just cause an even bigger wave of pirates but this time they will all be hell bent on going after the Marines directly and before you know it we have another war of the great.

Again this is all speculation and I have just as much evidence to support my theories as does the next guy to reply who says that I'm entirely wrong. From the way the series is going I expect that the main focus will be taking down Kaido and Big mam but we cannot forget about Luffy's wrath for Blackbeard; either way we all know the marines aren't even in the picture, its the pirate emperors that own this series. All it took was Shanks saying stop for an entire war to end, that's how terrified everyone is to piss off an emperor, and Luffy has made it his goal to piss them off. At this point the marines are relics of a lost age.


Actually, after researching a bit I came to this conclusion that is: In Episode 485:

Whitebeard tips backward, inhales, gathering his last breath, and bellows at the top of his lungs, "ONE PIECE... DOES EXIST!" His words echo throughout all of Marineford, and are heard over the Visual Den Den Mushi and transmitted straight to the viewing public at Sabaody Archipelago. Knowing what impact his final revelation is going to have, Sengoku curses Whitebeard.

Sengoku showed great fear and he was furious with Whitebeard because he revealed to the entire world about the existence of One Piece.

This shows that Sengoku don't want that one piece treasure should be discovered. He knew that after what Whitebeard said all the pirates will go mad and start searching for one piece and everyone will believe in Whitebeard words. But why he cursed him ?

Let us see the ideology of Sengoku regarding one piece:

Though he may appear to be stern because of his duties as a Marine, he is actually kind and compassionate. His drastic actions at the Battle of Marineford were motivated by the desire to protect innocent civilians from getting embroiled in conflict out of fear that when the secrets held in One Piece are discovered, it would turn the world on its head and lead to total war.

So actually, he wants to protect innocent civilians from pirates. He knew that if one piece will be discovered then it will lead to war and only innocent people will suffer. So by that he actually want one piece to be not discovered at all.

So in short for the sake of innocent people they didn't try to find one piece and focused on protecting them from pirates.

According to my hypothesis, if they will be able to find one piece and if pirates come to know about this news that one piece is with marines then for sure every pirates of that world will charge against those Marines just to get one piece and then you can just think how drastic situation it will be. There will be a huge battle and again innocent people will suffer.
