"The Judicials are at the end of their tenure, in any case, as the Jedi seem to have become the Senate’s arbiters of choice."
―Palpatine to Tarkin[src]

The Judicial Forces[1] or Republic Diplomatic Fleet[4] were the military-trained peacekeeping forces of the Galactic Republic in the years before its fall. They were a part of the Judicial Department, and its members, called Judicials, were trained at the Judicial Academy.[1]

Several years before the Clone Wars, the Republic began to rely more on the Jedi Order for peacekeeping issues, diminishing the necessity of the Judicial Forces.[1]

In 29 BBY, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi were supposed to meet with the fleet, however their T-6 shuttle crashed on the planet Carnelion IV. While on the world, the young Padawan asked his Master what they would do as the fleet did not have the world's coordinates.[4]

Just before the Battle of Geonosis, the Republic ultimately adopted a full Grand Army of the Republic.[5]

By the time of the war between the First Order and the Resistance, every after-action report ever written by the Judicial Forces was in the hands of the First Order, along with those of the Galactic Empire and the Planetary Security Forces.[6]


As of the time of the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY, Judicials wore double-breasted dark blue uniforms.[2]
