Okay guys, I've got a new idea (or more accurately a new bit of figurative theft of literal sources) for a modelling idea.
But it's based on use of local law enforcement, rather than actual Arbites or Guard.
Now adding in the possibilities of using some form of local PDF for this, for the moment, my question is:
Would a local governor - for using some form of proper response team a-la SWAT/SAS for police actions - deploy a special group of somewhat better trained PDF, or instead would they have or use some form of properly trained/equipped local law enforcement - assuming that the situation was something that Arbites might not be deployed for, based on the assumption that Arbites are for enforcing sector/system wide law relating to things like governors "forgetting" to pay tithes on time?
Which would be more appropriate and why? (I'm assuming local police, as they wouldn't be trained to shoot first in the way a PDF is trained).
Based on that, what sort of terms can be expected/have we seen/might we see for local law enforcement, given that they are not Arbites?
Something based on the similar logic of the phrase "Lex Imperialis" (a pseudo-latin reference to imperial law?)?
