ROCKHAMPTON’S police officers have joined Star Wars fans from around the world in celebrating Star Wars Day.

Today a number of officers were joined by a special recruit, Anakin Skywalker - better known as Darth Vader - for a spot of imperial marching before going forth to “bring order to the galaxy”.

SITH LORD: Rockhampton's police officers got into the spirit of Star Wars day by joining Darth Vadar for spot of marching.

For those not in the know, the catch phrase of the long running sci-fi movie series is “may the force be with you” which makes May the fourth an ideal day for Star Wars fans to celebrate.

Local Cos player Eve Martin also got into the spirit of things by dressing up as the legendary Rebel leader Princess Leia Organa - played in the movies by sadly departed actor Carrie Fisher.
