Boston's Policing Revolution: The Birth of the Day Police on May 21, 1838

“In 1838, Boston pioneered a new era of law enforcement with the creation of the Day Police. This innovative force, enabled by a legislative act on May 21, 1838, was tasked with upholding the city’s laws during daylight hours.
