INTRODUCTION

Police is the agency of a community or government that is responsible for maintaining public order, preventing and detecting crime. The basic police mission of preserving order by enforcing rules of conduct or laws- was the same in ancient societies as it is in sophisticated urban environments.

The conception of police as a protective and law enforcement organization developed from the use of military bodies as guardians of peace such as Praetorian Guard of ancient Rome.

During the middle ages, policing authority, particularly in England, was the responsibility of local nobles on their individual estates. Each noble generally appointed an official, known as a constable, to carry out the law. Their duties include keeping the peace, arresting and guarding criminals.

Police origin is product of social crisis in the society. In Nigeria the development of the police force was a tangential direction to that of British Force.

British trade interest and the need to prevent squabbles between the native chiefs and the imperial merchants were the impetus for the formation of the force. Consequently, the police grew up as a paramilitary force bearing arms from its inception.
