Even the most iconic law enforcement organizations began with the need to serve and protect. Some started out as neighborhood patrols, while others began while settlers tried to tame the wild west. How did everyday beat cops start? When did the Secret Service begin protecting the President of the United States? What do the Texas Rangers and Federal Marshals actually do? In Law Enforcement, part of Full Tilt's Origins: Whodunnit series, students will explore the world of crime-fighters by reading true stories, examining timelines, and more. Not only will readers learn about the origin of each group, they'll also read about what it takes to wear the badge.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With books touching on theft, the Mob, crime-scene investigation, and the U.S. Secret Service, the high-interest Origins: Whodunnit series comes with built-in hooks for middle-schoolers. Laid out to look like old-fashioned case files, each book features four concise chapters that offer a balanced presentation of information, numerous real-life examples, Did You Know? fact boxes, relevant illustrations, and approachable writing. Each chapter also features a time line arranged as index cards pinned to a corkboard. The U.S.' early efforts to protect citizens and prevent lawlessness is traced in Law Enforcement, which looks at the country's first police forces, the Texas Rangers, the varied responsibilities of the U.S. Secret Service, and the federal marshals. These attractive, informative books are solid starting points for research and recreational reading.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"
