The origin of the British police lies in early tribal history and is based on customs for securing order through the medium of appointed representatives. In effect, the people were the police. The Saxons brought this system to England and improved and developed the organisation. This entailed the division of the people into groups of ten, called "tythings", with a tything-man as representative of each; and into larger groups, each of ten tythings, under a "hundred-man" who was responsible to the Shire-reeve

John Ball, winner of an Edgar Award for In the Heat of the Night, found his research into novels about police officers so interesting and he became a reserve deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.  Indeed, his last book which was published posthumously, The Van: A Tale of Terror, is about the search for a pair of serial killers by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s homicide division.  In the Heat of the Night “tells the story of Virgil Tibbs, a black detective tracking a murderer in a small Southern town. The novel inspired both the 1967 film starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger and the television series starring Carroll O’Connor and continues to delight readers with its gripping narrative and honest look at race relations during the Civil Rights Era.”
