Foundations and history of law enforcement within Uskor
The foundations of the Royal Guard lie with the original constabulary established when Uskor itself was established.
Following on from this the various Uskorian law enforcement agencies that followed had various names and durations as the various government and forms of government in Uskor changed.
Most common names included the word or name “Watch” which was inspired by the name of the police force in the Discworld Series of books.
It has been stated that there has been a push by Uskorians both in government and outside of government to move away from the traditional concepts of policing and law enforcement into a more community orientated watch and keeping of the High Queen’s Laws and Peace, as well as a ceremonial role.
The Royal Guard follows on from these various “Watches” and was formally established by a Royal Decree during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020.
