Website update – Borough & County Police

October 5, 2014

Police forces as we know them today are an invention of the nineteenth century, with the first major development taking place in 1829 when the Metropolitan Police was formed. Other legislation such as the Municipal Corporation Act 1835, County Police Act 1839 and the County & Borough Police Act 1856 all helped shape the development of forces across England and Wales.

The latest addition to my website relates to the the development of borough and county forces and can be found by following the menu – Types and styles.
