I was referring to a police force, not a military force. The two have very different goals.
That depends a lot upon where you live (you should know that better than I, considering your regional neighbors).

It's seems to be a clear distinction - and everyone probably has their own mental image of that distinction. Sometimes, the only difference is their uniform, or arm patch.

But I know what you intended (I think) - in the US, internal use of the "military" is extremely rare. On the other hand, the national guard is used more often. The national guard can also be sent off to war. So, the difference?
