This word is sexist, and more importantly, highly ambiguous. Is there some other term which could describe this section? --Padraic 20:40, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

It's not sexist, don't even go there. Manhole? history?; anyway, this is not the place. Types of law enforcement agent maybe?
Manpower is a term used in law enforcement and human resources - just because it's 'man', it's no way sexist.--Cahk (talk) 08:00, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Deleting non-notable articles mentioned in this template[edit]

Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Law Enforcement#Intent to PROD non-notable Canadian municipal police departments discusses deleting several articles mentioned in this template. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 04:31, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Split Regional/Municipal[edit]

After the above-mentioned redirects and deletions are finished, I plan on splitting Municipal/Regional into 3 groups: First Nations, multi-city/regional, and municipal. I will highlight forces which serve populations of more than 500,000 people. For metro-area and city forces, this roughly corresponds to about the top-10-or-so in List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada, List of the 100 largest urban areas in Canada by population, and List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 13:53, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

split by province[edit]

Looking at the template, I'm thinking the enormous list of municipal/regional forces might be more readable if it were broken down by province. Thoughts? roux ] [x] 01:57, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Edit 19:53, 7 January 2009[edit]

The following agencies were found in a sub-set category and I've added them to the template:

I've also started a separate row for lists and moved the 3 aboriginal police forces into the specialized row as their jurisdiction isn't really a municipality or region but rather, an Indian Reserve or treaty areas. --Cahk (talk) 19:58, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
