Week 2 Instructor Insight
The History of Policing may appear to be a simple topic, but it’s a lot more complex and involved than it first appears!
Within these links/download(s), you will find information and analysis that will help you form a better understanding of the history of policing in many aspects.
As you carefully review the information within these links/download(s), please focus your attention upon a few questions. What value does knowledge and understanding of history offer us?
