The Dock Watch is a branch of the Altdorf Watch based in the Docklands neighborhood.
The Dock Watch are notoriously corrupt. They are allied with the Hooks waterfront gang, and will allow the gang to perform criminal actions unmolested. The Hooks, meanwhile, must restrict their activities to the Docklands. The Dock Watch also enlists Hooks to rough up any enemies of the Watch that it would be politically inconvenient for them to deal with overtly.[1b]
Some aspects of this alliance are publicly known. For instance, it's a poorly kept secret that the Citizens' Vigilance Commitees set up by the watch are simply a front for the vigilante actions of the Hooks.[1a]
