When the Society was founded in 1990, the original bylaws called for 82 Vidocq Society Members, one for each year of Vidocq's life.

The Vidocq Society is Non-Profit 501c(3) Corporation.

Eugène François Vidocq was an 18th century French crook-turned-cop. As a fugitive from French justice, he first offered his services as a police spy and informer. Later, he became so successful at catching criminals that he was named the first chief of the Sûreté, in 1811. Vidocq eventually directed a force of 28 detectives, all of whom were also former criminals. Eugène François Vidocq is considered by historians and those in law enforcement to be the father of modern criminal investigation. He introduced record keeping (a card-index system), criminalistics, and the science of ballistics into police work; was the first to make plaster-of-paris casts of foot/shoe impressions; was a master of disguise and surveillance; held patents on indelible ink and unalterable bond paper; and founded the first modern detective agency and credit bureau, Le Bureau des Renseignements. After he resigned from the Sûreté, Vidocq published Memoires, a book which became a best-seller in Europe and firmly established him as the world's greatest detective.
