  Police
Police are normally considered an emergency service and may provide a public safety function at large gatherings, as well as in emergencies, disasters, and search and rescue situations.
Police are also responsible for enforcing minor offenses by issuing citations and imposing fines, particularly for violating traffic laws.
Police may respond to reports of excessive noise, For instance, in some Australian jurisdictions, people who are drunk and causing a public nuisance are typically no longer arrested, but legislation has been passed allowing police to take the person to a "drying-out centre" where they can recover from the effects of the alcohol.

Police are also responsible for reporting minor offenses by issuing citations which typically may result in the imposition of fines, particularly for violations of traffic law.
Police sometimes involve themselves in the maintenance of public order, even where no legal transgressions have occurred -- for example, in some Australian jurisdictions, people who are drunk and causing a public nuisance may be removed to a "drying-out centre" until they recover from the effects of the alcohol.
Conversely, most professional militaries consider police activities to be a distraction from their primary goal, and when militaries attempt to operate as civil police forces, they usually alienate the population that they attempt to serve.

 CORPORATE WRONGDOING POLICING   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Corporate crime, however, always creates an interest in the damage that it causes although, as far as the country and public are concerned, it may be mostly unfelt as it is a special type of victimisation.
Corporate crime may also appear in the form of a "hidden economy" looking for victims in the search for gain and profits especially in a system of inequality and inadequate commercial crime control in which the police is involved, primarily, with its means of proactive supervision, detection and processing of crime in commerce.
In addition to that, intolerable conduct in commerce and corporate activity is, mainly, "mala prohibita" and not as much "mala in se" conduct, which is irrelevant to the police understanding of legality and to the operation of the stigma in the case of accessibility and culpability of the offender.

 Corporate police state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Corporate police state is a pejorative term for the kind of transnational system of government that transcends geographic boundaries to regulate the conduct of employees, outsource contractors and markets, via a form of business practices known as vertical integration.
Corporate police states combine an economy based on private enterprise, especially large business corporations, with a repressive and authoritarian government.
It is envisioned that a corporate police state could manifest itself in a kind of modern feudalism, or, in combination with sufficient nationalism and strong state power, could turn into a variant of fascism.

 Is there a future for legislative involvement in shaping the structure of agriculture? - Roger McEowen, October 2003
“a corporation or syndicate engaged in farming or the ownership of agricultural land, in which a majority of the partnership interests, shares, stock, or other ownership interests are held by members of a family or a trust created for the benefit of a member of that family.
At least one of the family members in a family farm corporation or syndicate shall reside on or be actively engaged in the day-to-day labor and management of the farm.
However, if the state regulates without a discriminatory purpose but with a legitimate purpose, the provision will be upheld unless the burden on interstate commerce is clearly excessive in relation to the benefits that the state derives from the regulation.

 Corporate person and Human Commodification
Corporate legal battles were not limited to preservation of their charters but extended to ever wider attempts to deploy property and exercise coercive force.
Far from being "artificial" creatures of the state, corporations might be seen as "real" legal persons deriving their powers and legitimacy from their own internal processes as human "fellowships" or associations.
Because corporate power in the United States is legally separate from state power ("private" versus "public"), the situation is superficially more akin to the late medieval structure of corporate "estates" as "cobearers of central power" (245) than to twentieth-century fascism's "corporative conception of the State" (Bottai 1931, 30).
