The shore police were a branch of the New Republic Defense Fleet during the cold war. They wore military uniforms and had holstered sidearms. About thirty years after the Battle of Endor two shore police, one a male short-horned Devaronian and a human female, arrested the New Republic starfighter pilot Poe Dameron on Mirrin Prime after he took part in an unauthorized skirmish with First Order forces in OR-Kappa-2722. These officers were accompanied by Major Caluan Ematt who brought Dameron and BB-8 to meet General Leia Organa; who arranged for Poe and the rest of Rapier Squadron to join the Resistance, a private military group that fought the First Order independently of the New Republic military.
