Historys Blotter: May 1611
 

First Lawman in the Colonies?

There is a strong case to be made for Sir Thomas Dale as the first lawman in the British US Colonies. Dale arrived in the Jamestown settlement in the colony of Virginia in 1611, just four years after its founding. He served as deputy governor of Virginia and as marshal. As marshal, Dale enforced the new civil and military codes of the colony. These codes, often referred to as Dale’s Laws, were notably severe, even in a time known for harsh justice.

Let's travel back to May 1611 to learn about a moment in law enforcement history.
