Rural Law Enforcement

In the Rural Law Enforcement section you'll find news reports and expert articles about what it means to be a police officer in rural America. Early in America’s history, officers rode on horseback from town to town, either alone or with a small posse. Police work has changed drastically since then, but if you patrol in a rural area, you probably have some idea how those cops felt.
