A

Concerning the American model’s development, a few components and stages can be singled out. They include the introduction of anti-anarchy measures brought by English colonists (self-policing practices, night watches, citizen volunteering, etc.) and the first attempts to standardize approaches to law enforcement (the establishment of the first police forces in New York and Boston in the mid-17th century). Also, they include the rise of vigilantism in the 18th century to address the lack of uniformity in law enforcement, the creation of the first federal agencies, a further complication of the system’s organizational structure, and police militarization.

Thus, the model developed due to the impact of England and its “hue and cry” approach to policing. Being a practice utilized only in the USA, Slave Patrols contributed to the system’s evolution and uniqueness. Nowadays, there are federal, state, and local levels of law enforcement. The complex system is needed to defuse legal conflicts between different states and distribute roles in an effective manner. The entity impacting the American policing system most of all is the Supreme Court.
