In the early days of western settlement, towns had small populations and law enforcement was almost non-existent. In most communities, this was not a problem. However, there were exceptions: it was not unusual for a small mining camp to turn into an unruly settlement and an unruly settlement to become a lawless town. It was an era known for stagecoach and bank robberies; gunfights and cattle rustling.
