Abstract

This chapter draws on the life histories of English police officers (both written and spoken) in an attempt to assess how far certain core features of contemporary police culture can be traced historically. Criminologists have argued that some elements of contemporary ‘cop culture’ have proved remarkably persistent over the last forty years. How far is it possible to track the continuity of ‘cop culture’ further back in history?
