Revision as of 17:33, 1 September 2010 by Aule the Smith (Talk | contribs)

The Watch was responsible for maintaining the peace in the Shire. It consisted of the Shirriffs, a police force of twelve hobbits responsible for 'Internal Work', and the Bounders, a larger body that guarded the borders of the Shire. The head of the Watch was the First Shirriff, a post attached to that of the Mayor of Michel Delving.
