Needed clear definition between roles of Topside and Underworld Policing Edit

My addition has been removed for not having a source to justify the Underworld polices paramilitary orientation. I accept this, however it should be noted in the article that there is an obvious difference in the presentation of policing in different parts of Coruscant. Topside policing as seen by the droids taking the mantle of a civil force, as shown by the lesser threat and more civilised atmosphere which allows officers to sometimes solitary patrol as we have seen in the series. Contrast this with Underworld policing which seems to be defined by tightly armed groups of well armoured and armed mobile forces which makes them more capable of dealing with armed opponents and all types of violence. In modern society paramilitary orientated police forces are tasked with re-establishing law and order in conflict areas, which is an apt description of the Coruscant Underworld. I suggest we try to clarify its specific role better while avoiding established labels. 81.135.31.23 22:21, March 2, 2013 (UTC)

  • Your additions were removed because there is no source that states underworld police officers recieved training that was different from police officers at the top. Until a source states that underworld cops recieved paramilitary training, we can not say it is so as that is against site policies. As a side note: several other sources have explicitly stated that Coruscant cops were NOT a paramilitary trained organization though one can argue that police by their definition are paramiliary. However, that is a real-world argument, not an in-universe argument. The only exceptions were during the Empire when CSF cops were supplemented by stormtroopers, and second, the various tactitical units that the CSF operated. For more information as well as a list of those sources, please refer to the Coruscant Security Force article. Also, you'll notice that the article does make a difference between underworld cops and cops on the surface specifically in the intro and the first sentence of the "Description" section. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions though I would ask you read the CSF article and its various topic related articles first to see if you questions can be answered there.

Infobox change Edit

Why exactly was this article's infobox template changed to Title? The Coruscant Underworld Police is an organization, not a title. These are titles. Organization is the better template here. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 01:39, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

  • To me title made more sense since the Encyclopedia entry specifically states they were part of the regular police force, not separate. I can change it back if you feel it doesn't fit, I don't really care one way or the other, the title field just seemed to be the better option when I was working on the canon page earlier.

    • Yes, I would change it back. The Title template is designed for that specific article type. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 01:53, September 8, 2015 (UTC)
