From the Series Origins: Whodunnit

  • Interest Level: Grade 5 - Grade 8   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Even the most iconic law enforcement organizations began with the need to serve and protect. Some started out as neighborhood patrols, while others began while settlers tried to tame the wild west. How did everyday beat cops start? When did the Secret Service begin protecting the President of the United States? What do the Texas Rangers and Federal Marshals actually do? In Law Enforcement, part of Full Tilt’s Origins: Whodunnit series, students will explore the world of crime-fighters by reading true stories, examining timelines, and more. Not only will readers learn about the origin of each group, they’ll also read about what it takes to wear the badge.
