Since the nineteenth century in England the sheriff has had no police powers. (Points : 2) True False
Weegy: False The coroner was up and running by the end of the twelfth century. [ From the beginning the coroner was an elected official and his duties included; protecting the interest of the king (in criminal and fiscal matters) and in felony cases the coroner could conduct preliminary hearing. The sheriff often attended the hearing to preside over the coroner's jury (Peak, 2006). In America the coroner was recognized as a separate office and was to perform one function; determine the cause of death. The coroner and his/her assistant were to determine the cause and effect of any wounds, broken bones, and more. In the beginning the sheriff's or any other officers did not ware uniforms. That changed in the United States when New York officers became the first to wear uniforms. When officers stated carrying weapons the citizens became suspicious and now it is normal to see officers with weapons. Sheriff's were appointed back then and now we elect them. Women were not allowed to be officers back in the day, but now they are. When new things come into being or use they usually go through a change, when we find something that might work better we try it. As a result of this reform and change continue even in present day society. ] (More)
