New York Constable's.

I have done some looking into with Constable's in New York.I hope that you enjoy what I have come across.

A LEATHERHEAD AND HIS SENTRY BOX: Called leatherheads because of their distinctive leather helmets, the constable watch patrolled the city from scattered sentry boxes in the early decades of the 1800s. Often the first on the scene at fires a constant danger in a city with many wooden buildings - they wore their helmets for protection against falling debris. By the 1840s, the constable watch was regarded as a collection of "idlers and gossipers" who couldn't control New York's growing crime and disorder problems.

JACOBS HAYS: The high constable from 1802 to 1844, Hays was said to have known every criminal in New York. A man of great physical strength, he patrolled armed only with his constable's staff, making arrests and quelling street brawls single-handedly. In Old New York, misbehaving children were warned that "old Hays will be after you."

CHIEF MATSELL'S SHIELD: Like all New York City police officers, Chief Matsell wore a copper shield bearing the seal of the City of New York set in an eight-pointed star. The department quickly became known as the "star police." It is possible that the copper badge also gave rise to the slang term "copper" or "cop," although the term may have derived from the initials for "constable on patrol."

I would like to thank the New York Police Dept.for this information.
