Police History

   
 

Police are agents or agencies empowered to enforce the law and to effect public and social order through the legitimate use of force. The word Police comes via French from the Latin politia (“civil administration”), which itself derives from the Ancient Greek, for polis ("city"). The first police force comparable to present-day police was established in 1667 under King Louis XIV in France, although modern police usually trace their origins to the 1800 establishment of the Marine Police in London, the Glasgow Police, and the Napoleonic police of Paris.

The modern police force in Malaya and Malaysia started in 25 March 1807 when a police force was established in Penang. Most of the officers were of British origin. Soon, several similar organizations were introduced to the Straits Settlements and other Malay states, particularly to the Federated Malay States. These organizations, however, were not integrated and were independent of each other. This changed after World War II; police forces all across Malaya were streamlined and placed under a single administration.
