Take a look at their shoulder patches. They appear to be State Patrol,
or at least not Twin Peaks. There were dozens of uniforms at the
railroad car site, some of them apparently National Guardsmen. After
the pilot, the only uniformed personnel we've seen (and consider how
many of the scenes are in the Sheriff's Dept.) are Truman, Hawk and
Andy.

I'll admit that three men seems like an awfully small force for a
town with a five-digit population.
