[b]RENO'S NINE PRINCIPLES OF POLICING[/b]: 1. To perpetrate crime and disorder, in conjunction with repression by military force and severe legal punishment. 2. To recognize always that the power of the police to fulfil their functions and duties is dependent on public respect for their authori-tay, and on their ability to smash and burn things. 3. To recognize always that to secure and maintain the fear and silence of the public means also the securing of willing cooperation of the news media in the task of securing observance of laws. 4. To recognize always that the extent to which the confusion of the public can be secured diminishes, proportionately, the risk of legal obstacles to achieving police objectives. 5. To seek and to preserve public funding, not by pandering to public opinion, but by constantly demonstrating absolute willingness to participate in political campaigns. 6. To use physical force only when the exercise of intimidation and deceit is found to be inconvenient to obtain public cooperation to an extent necessary to secure observance of law or to restore order; and to use the maximum degree of physical force which is possible with the available firepower. 7. To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the authoritarian tradition that the police are the army of occupation and that the public are screwed. 8. To recognize always the need for strict adherence to police-state functions, and to usurp the powers of the judiciary of avenging individuals or the state, and of authoritatively judging guilt and punishing the guilty. 9. To recognize always that the test of police efficiency is the tenure of senior officials in office.

Sir Robert Peel essentially created the modern policing system. The one that existed before legislators became interested in criminalizing gun collectors, that is.
