Okay, here we go. The next list of stuff.  You can vote for the next 6 days, so that we can get the ball moving again.

Would Police be a list of organizations (e.g. The Ankh-Morpork City Watch) or individuals (e.g. Cmmdr Sam Vimes)?

Sorry. That one got mangled by my brain in the few seconds to change screens. It would be "fictional police officers."

Would FBI be considered police?  I mean, I know FBI Police are, but what about the FBI in general?

Yes as an internal security organization the FBI are essentially the top ranking police organization for the USA. MI5 is likewise for the UK, not sure what Canada has.

EDIT: Goflyblind beat me to this one.

Really?  You don't?



Canada has the Royal Canadian Mountain Police (more commonly called the RCMP) that acts as the federal police force.  Silly costumes and iconography aside, they are pretty badass and are very well-trained.

Actually, these days they are generally dressed like this:

The red outfit (called the Review Order or the Red Serge) is usually saved for ceremonial purposes, as are the actual mounting of horses.  Very few attacks on terrorist compounds are aided by being on horseback.

Edit: Department H is more like CSIS, I think.  Sorry Puck.

Yeah that makes sense; didn't know if the RCMP was the close to exact analogue or if there was something else.

Anything to do with Alpha Flight or similar is a semi external security force and thus dabbles in clandestine services and isn't police.

Quick (and late) answer- no idea. I tossed that up as a last minute filler so that we had more lists to choose from and apparently whatever I was thinking of didn't make it to the keyboard, (shrug)


Okay, Fictional cops won. However, I was the one who proposed that, so does anyone wish to volunteer to run it?  Unless we want me to run two in a row.

I can run it. I am still jobless and I will need something to focus on whilst in Florida.
