These Associations, largely existing between 1780-1850, “were private institutions, made up of local property-owners, who came together to form an organization and raise a fund in order to find, arrest, and prosecute, at common expense, offenders against themselves and their property” (Philips in Hay and Snyder, ‘Policing and Prosecution in Britain 1750-1850, page 118)
