March 2020 Flash Challenge: The Watch

In any fantasy or sword-and-sandals epic there is always a group of people whose job it is to attack the hero or heroine one at a time and get thumped. They may be the city guard, they may be the Emperor's Chosen. Terry Pratchett called them simply "The Watch".

In a thousand words or less, tell us a police procedural set in a fantasy realm. I will accept stories that might, in the right light, *look* familiar, but no nicking someone else's universe. The Watch frown on that sort of thing, and they're damned hard to fence.

I am in as well - I mean, what else do I have to do? - might as well write something...
