Abstract

This research compiles information pertaining to the discourse surrounding the study of class-based systems as it relates to the establishment of our modern policing systems. Focus is on the London Metropolitan Police Force, est. 1829. Analysis of a collection of information from the fields of sociology, history, criminology, and anthropology revealed that there is an undeniable relationship between class structures in society and systems of social control. From there, two main sociological theories; conflict and consensus, are used to examine the relationship between the London Metropolitan Police and the class systems of England in the early-mid 1800's.
