This part of a wikipedia article has some info and links to info on the branches:Guys, can anyone tell me the relationships between Police dept, Sheriff dept, US Marshal in USA?
I have spent multi-day excursions out in the north woods with my warden friend, and believe me, they have to be resourceful. Drive on nasty rutted roads strewn with tire-slashing ledge and slate for hours and hours, and find yourself in a situation... You can guess how soon back-up might arrive, and how quickly you have to resolve a bad situation so that nobody gets killed. When his son graduated from the law-enforcement academy and passed warden training, his first posting was at Estcourt, and the very northern tip of Maine. I love the kid, and I'm proud of him for taking (and actually requesting) that posting - pretty much all alone if things go bad.Yeah. I used to subscribe to the magazine "Outdoor California", which is published by the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG). Each issue would have a 1-page true story from a Game Warden, much like the one you told. Amazing stuff. As you say, alone, often in the dark, confronting multiple armed subjects. I didn't see any of the stories listed online (quick glance only), but here is some more info on the DFG wardens:
Don't forget US Customs and Border Patrol, which oddly, was part of the Treasury Department before 9/11.Police are usually municipal - city, village, town.
Sheriff and deputy sheriffs = county, a political entity larger than a city, town or village, although large cities like Houston and NY City could been in several counties. Each state has many counties.
State Police = Police force for state, e.g., NY, California, Texas.
At the federal level there are numerous law enforcement agencies, e.g. FBI, US Marshall, Secret Service, INS (Immigration), . . . .
A relationship between those three that you have mentioned is found within the United States Bureau of Justice Assistance. Here’s a great example of how those three work together in a relationship with youth. :-)Guys, can anyone tell me the relationships between Police dept, Sheriff dept, US Marshal in USA?
In 2008, a task force was established in New Jersey to help expand G.R.E.A.T. and to serve the needs of the community’s youth. The task force is comprised of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, the Jersey City Police Department, the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office, and the Hudson County Department of Corrections. This illustrates the benefit of law enforcement working together to help children succeed.
What is G.R.E.A.T.?
The Gang Resistance Education and Training Program (G.R.E.A.T.) is a school based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum. The G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid delinquent behavior, youth violence, and gang membership. The Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), administers the G.R.E.A.T. program. The U.S. Marshals, in collaboration with local law enforcement and community partners, began a nationwide initiative in 2007 to teach the G.R.E.A.T. program.
This dates from the very earliest days of our nation. Alex Hamilton set up this arrangement to ensure that tariffs and such went to the national treasury. In those days this was the main source of income for our new nation. Naturally the states who had been the benefactors of this source of income were not to happy about it.Don't forget US Customs and Border Patrol, which oddly, was part of the Treasury Department before 9/11.
