This essay focuses on the agency that, more than any other, can be and has been perceived as a controller and supervisor within modern society - professional, bureaucratic police. Yet it is important to remember that discipline and supervisory strategies were employed within different communities long before the introduction of professional police. Many of these have virtually disappeared, but others have persisted and evolved.
