Basic law enforcement in the CNA and its associated entities is more tied to the military than IOW USA or Canada, given the FANTL's greater history of domestic insurrection. Local police are called "militia", leading to the generic slang term "millies" where we would say "cops". Detective work in the CNA is done by province-wide or confederation-wide militia units (assisted by the national CBI). The Surete de Quebec and Nova Scotia Provincial Police manage these functions in their own jurisdictions. The NSPP have red uniforms like those of the Royal Manitoba Constabulary (see Out of Uniform and Rocket Science -- the name "Lobsterbacks", however, is strictly Yank slang harkening back to the Rebellion.
