The Zealandian Watch or ZW (Zealandian:Løgmaner af Zålandien, Swedish:Lagmän av Zeelandien Irish:Garda Síochána na Séanlainnail) is the Law Enforcement Agency of the Commonwealth of Zealandia. It is responsible for enforcing criminal law, ensuring public safety, maintaining order and keeping the peace within Zealandia.

History

The ZW, then called the Royal Zealandia Constabulary was established on March 2 2010 as the sole law enforcement agency of the Kingdom of Zealandia.

The then Home Minister Socks Alexandria made a ruling that the RZC was to be a unarmed police service much like New Zealand Police or The Metropolitan Police Service

Anna Lindström was appointed as the First Chief Constable on March 2 2010.

On July 16 2010 it announced that a review into the RZC and The Customs and Borders Police Service regarding operational areas and functions of said forces.

On August 1 2012, during the Winter Revolution the RZC was the last organisation to defect to the republic's side and was subsequently renamed as the "Federal Zealandian Constabulary".


In January 2014 the organisation was renamed to the Zealandian Watch, previously having been named the Federal Zealandian Watch.
