Department of Magical Law Enforcement History

The first Minister for Magic, Ulick Gamp, created the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and it has been deemed his greatest accomplishment. The Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement has a substantial amount of power, such as in the 1970s when Bartemius Crouch Senior made the Unforgivable Curses permissible for Aurors to use, and also sentenced suspected Death Eaters to Azkaban without trial. There are many subdivisions in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, some of the main divisions are the Auror Office, Improper Use of Magic Office, and Wizengamot Administration Services, as well as many other smaller subdivisions. In 2014, Hermione Granger took a position as Deputy Head of the Department and proceeded to help weed out the pro-pure-blood laws that were in effect. The current head of the Department is Harry Potter.
