|Security and Intelligence Council|
The Security and Intelligence Council (SIC) also known as the Security Council was a Senate council of the Galactic Alliance. Its duties were to supervise the Galactic Alliance Intelligence Service, advise the Chief of State on matters of galactic and governmental security, and conduct special investigations. With a majority vote, the Council could also authorize special powers for security forces to take special measures including the internment of civilians without a trial. This power was used by Jacen Solo after the Council gave him a commission as a colonel and authorized the establishment of the Galactic Alliance Guard. Coruscant Senator G'vli G'Sil was the chairman during the Second Galactic Civil War.
