The Forces of Law and Order
Traditionally Austrian rule of Venetia has been associated with repressive policing. This chapter highlights a very different story. Not only does it emphasise that relatively little police activity went into dealing with subversion — in part because of the quiescence of Venetia during the period on which this study focuses — but also that the police played a key part in ensuring the good government of the region through information gathering, monitoring the bureaucracy, and, perhaps surprisingly, representing Venetian interests to central government.
