That is one advantage of policing at the switch port, yes. But that
would be to manage traffic coming in from the customer.

If the attack traffic is coming from the Internet (toward the customer),
then policing on the router saves the router-switch trunk.

Either way, over-sizing router-switch trunks is always best.
