Abstract

This essay considers the emergence of the concept of police power and the institution of policing in the United States in relation to the development and maintenance of projects of enslavement, settler colonialism, racial domination, and overseas conquest over time. It speculates that whiteness and policing have become coconstitutive through a long historical process, one that continues to define and constellate the present.
