With a space elevator to get to the station, some form of army involvement would be reasonable, for staion security, and manning any defensive emplacements.

Also, secret service, if you take "Star Trek" for instance, even the "nice guy" Federation had section 31.

A space elevator would also be an easy thing to threaten, maybe disrupting the controls so that an elevator vehicle accelerates uncontrollably, either toward the station, or toward a collision between two on the same line (if it had 2 or 4 ascent/descent tracks, and the path of a car was reversed).

And of course, one of the cars is carrying either somebody very important, or something explosive
