What would be the pros and cons of a merged military and police?
In the world I am building war is an ongoing issue, and so the culture's military is quite extensive. Also the majority of people carry weapons around with them because it's 'the norm' there.
The war is an ongoing conflict which flares up then goes quiet for a while.
Honor is a major part of life, meaning you can't attack someone who is unarmed, can't attack them if they are unable to defend themselves, etc.
For the purpose of this question the only thing a police-style force in this world would have to do is keep an eye on things and break up the occasional drunken fight.
In this situation, the culture has their military and police merged, so my question is: what would the pros and cons of this merged force be?
The military already have shifts of "watching" or guarding, so the idea is that they are allowed to intervene to stop unnecessary deaths
The setting is high fantasy.
