The Uskorian Watch (Swedish: Uskors väktare) is the national law enforcement agency of the Commonwealth of Uskor, responsible for enforcing the law, enhancing public safety, maintaining order, and arresting criminals. The Uskorian Watch is overseen by the Ministry for State Security.
The origins of the Uskorian Watch belong in the former Royal Zealandian Constabulary and the various police forces from Uskor’s past both as a republic and a socialist country.
The Uskorian Watch came into existence on August 26 of 2017 as the Uskorian Civil Guard following the collapse of the then socialist regime and restoration of the monarchy, in October 2017 the Civil Guard’s name was changed by referendum to the Uskorian Watch.
Since 2012 all law enforcement agencies of Uskor have tried to avoid using the words police or constabulary in their names to avoid accidental confusion with their Australian counterparts.
