      The development of policing in the United States closely followed the development of policing in England. In the early colonies policing took two forms. It was both informal and communal, which is referred to as the “Watch,” or private-for-profit policing, which is called “The Big Stick” (Spitzer, ). Yet even with crime down, the city became less safe as new mechanisms of policing terrorized already marginalized communities. Balto convincingly shows Chicago’s significance as a laboratory of policing techniques from the anticommunist Red Squads of the early 20th century to the brutal “Gang Investigation Unit” that replaced it.

        At the dawn of the 20th century, police were, at least de facto, acting as the enforcement arm of organized crime in virtually every big city. Police also engaged in and helped organize widespread election fraud in their role as political functionaries for the machine. preventing crime and disorder has not fundamentally changed. Nor has the dedication of the officers and staff that have served since. But over time the model for policing initiated by Peel has slowly been eroded. His revolutionary model for policing in London was so successful, Parliament legislated for.

      What do you need to know about law? Search in more than entries. Walker’s account begins with a description of the role and function of police in the 19th century, moves to the rise of professionalization in the early 20th century and the new role of police in social welfare, and finishes with discussion of policing of reform movement, race riots, and the “war on crime.
