Summary: Guards are essentially the police force of Pern. Their tasks range from patrolling the perimeter and within their jurisdiction, stopping crime, detective work when a crime has been committed, keeping the peace, and protecting various store houses and treasuries in the weyr or hold of their assignment. They also keep up with care and maintenance of weapons, teach basic Law procedures, and run the jail. Not surprisingly, the guards are also the first to volunteer to 'deal with' someone who's been sentenced to death. Death and injury are familiar to most guards.
