The Law

Laws are a body of official rules and regulations written and implemented to govern a society, prescribed by authority or established by custom to set guidelines on public behavior and morality to maintain order and stability.

Laws define the rights of citizens to secure justice, resolve disputes in a peaceful and civilized manner, and to uphold customs and traditions within boundaries that do not infringe on the civil rights of others.

Laws serves many functions that are applied and interpreted by courts and legislatures in local, state, and federal jurisdictions. They are carried out by police departments and other enforcement agencies that are given the right and the means to uphold them.
