Semi-protected edit request on 23 March 2016[edit]

After footnote [69] (Hills, 2009), I would like to add the following:

"In some cases, the transportability of policing models could also be related to the promotion of national policing models (Arcudi and Smith, 2013).[70]"

Law enforcement?[edit]

From the lead:

Law enforcement, however, constitutes only part of policing activity. Policing has included an array of activities in different situations, but the predominant ones are concerned with the preservation of order. In some societies, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, these developed within the context of maintaining the class system and the protection of private property.

"Law enforcement" is an inexact term because police only deal with crime, traffic offences, and other public order issues. They do not deal with civil law/private law. This passage also implies that the preservation of order and the protection of private property are not a matter of "law enforcement". This, of course, is not true.--Jack Upland (talk) 01:14, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

United Sates Oldest Law Enforcement Agency i.e. Police[edit]

The Virginia State Capitol Police is the nations oldest Law Enforcement Agency I.e. Police. As stated in documents and the wiki page for the Virginia State Capitol Police, they were formed under the "Public Guard" in 1618 and were charged with protecting the Governor and colony's from Indian attacks as well as protection of public property. The "Public Guard" remained in place until the Civil War, at that time all militia and paramilitary organizations were banned in the south and the "Public Guard" was changed to the "Capitol Police".

What does this mean, well the Virginia State Capitol Police will be celebrating its 400th Anniversary in 2018. VA.LAWOFFICER (talk) 23:20, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
