Title
The Influence of the British Garrison on the Development of the Montreal Police, 1832 to 1853
Abstract
The frequent use of imperial troops as an aid to the civil power in Montreal in the years from 1832 to 1853 led the British military authorities to take the initiative in encourafing the development of rural and municipal police systems in the 1840s. This encouragement extended all the way from proposing police ordinances to providing officers and men to train a mounted police constabulary in 1849. Former military officers and soldiers made up the top personnel of both rural and municipal police.
