Discuss the emergence of urban services in the 19th century U.S. City. Is the need for
such services still there today? Did 19th century urban people require the same city
services as city people in our own day do?

overpopulated, "between 1830 and 1860, the United States' urban population grew by 552
percent from 1.1 million people to 6.2 million people"(Chudacoff 93). It was this influx
of people into urban small urban areas that created various health and safety issues, i.e.
urban problems, such as crime, disease, sanitation, and poverty to name a few. In an
effort to remedy some of these newly emerging urban problems urban services such as police
forces, water and sanitation departments and fire departments were first established.
Disease and crime were two key urban problems that will be explored through examining the
urban services, police departments and healthcare, which emerged in an effort to combat
