For historians, policy have proven to be an exciting and important subject. There are several reasons. First, policy as we know then are relatively new to the American scene, emerging in the middle of the nineteenth century. Before the modern policy, there were only various forms of policing inherited from the middle ages. Thus, a question emerges: how could cities exist without an organization which now seems so indispensable to urban crime control? The transition to a policed society came with the transformation of our cities, so the history of policing also tells us about the history of our cities. But this history of policing also informs us about crime, crime control, and the whole urban underclass. So in a sense the history of the police works in two directions, toward their larger organizational and political context and towards the individuals whom they policed.
