Origins of Federal Law Enforcement U.S. Constitution does not confer general police power to the national government – Gives broader policing power to the states – However, Constitution does envision a law enforcement responsibility for the national government (i.e. enforcing enumerated powers and treason) – 4 th, 5 th, 6 th, and 8 th Amendments all protect citizens from federal government power The Necessary and Proper Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 8) – Gives government the ability to exercise its responsibilities through all necessary and proper means Copyright © 2014 Carolina Academic Press.

Serving the Federal Judiciary System Judiciary Act of 1789 Created 13 federal judicial districts, federal district and appellate courts, the office of U.S. Attorney in each district, and the office of U.S. Marshal in each district – U.S. Marshals considered to be first federal law enforcement officers with an exclusively law enforcement mission Served federal court orders, captured/delivered federal prisoners, & enforced summonses of citizens for jury duty to serve as jurors Acts and policies under investigation jurisdiction of U.S. Marshals: – Alien Act of 1798, Sedition Act of 1798, immigration laws, slave trade violations, & post-Civil War civil rights violations Copyright © 2014 Carolina Academic Press.

Securing Public Facilities In 1790, Congress appointed a commission to manage and protect facilities while they were under construction in Washington, D.C. Started as six (6) night watchmen – Originally overseen by a superintendent of public buildings, then Office of the Commissioner in 1816 – Department of Interior (DOI) established in 1849 DOI was given the management and control over public facilities H.R. 158, An Act Making Appropriations for Public Buildings and Other Purposes – April 29, 1828 – Created the Capitol police force (largely undertrained, relied on D.C. auxiliary guard) – Absorbed into DOI at its formation Copyright © 2014 Carolina Academic Press.

Federal Law Enforcement Expands with the Nation Issues in American Western Frontier during expansion: – Native American tribes raiding/attacking westward settlers – Many criminals & outlaws went west due to little law enforcement presence Potentially only a handful of U.S. Marshals in the equivalent area of 1-2 modern-day states – Often the only civilian law enforcement power in the western territories If federal money or property were taken in a robbery, the U.S. Marshals were granted jurisdiction of the case – Could also have joint jurisdictions with local authorities within states & organized territories Copyright © 2014 Carolina Academic Press.

Cleveland – Cleveland receiving threats to a USSS fraud case , 3 presidential assassinations (Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley) Politicians worried that if U.S. Military used for personal detail, it would give president too much power (e.g., using personal detail for secret orders) – House Judiciary Committee recommended use of USSS – passed in 1907 Copyright © 2014 Carolina Academic Press.
