 Bailiff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The administrative and financial role of the bailliages and sénéchaussées declined in the early modern period (superseded by the king's royal tax collectors and regional gouverneurs, and later by the intendants), and by the end of the 18th century, the bailliages, which numbered into the hundreds, served only a judicial function.
However the term Bailie is still used as an honorary title by Glasgow City Council for a number of senior councillors who can deputise for the Lord Provost.
These special agents are state level law enforcement officers, trained through the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and hold the same power and duties throughout the State, that the Sheriff's have within their respective counties.
