From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

This article is about the Security Act. You may be looking for the Enhanced Security and Enforcement Act.

The Security Act was passed by the Galactic Senate by a wide margin the day after the Battle of Coruscant.


It nominally transferred command of the Jedi High Council from the Senate directly to the Supreme Chancellor, thus providing him with the Constitutional authority to disband the Jedi Order. It also removed Jedi and Senatorial oversight of the Republic's military, placing the Supreme Chancellor in direct command and naming him Supreme Commander of the Republic Armed Forces.

It was written by Palpatine but given to a loyal senator to introduce, in order to maintain the facade of the Senate forcing power on him against his will.

Behind the scenes

The Security Act might be a metaphor for the United States PATRIOT Act, which broadens the federal government's surveillance and police powers to combat terrorism.
