First, in one of the most comprehensive examinations of rural policing, Weisheit, Wells, and Falcone (1995) found that unlike urban settings where municipal agencies are primarily responsible for police services, sheriffs’ departments play a far greater role in the administration of law enforcement in rural communities.
