Chester Cathedral Constables are a small team of constables who maintain order and security in and around Chester Cathedral.[1]


In December 2011, Chester Cathedral appointed a head constable to lead a new team of volunteer constables to maintain security, and to keep good order within the Cathedral and its precincts.[2]

Present Day[edit]

Currently the Chester Cathedral Constabulary has 5 active serving volunteers. The longest serving were assisted with training in 2015 by the local territorial force Cheshire. Although volunteers they were not given the same Rank of special constable as they work for a private constabulary.[3] In August and October 2017 they were joined by 3 former Special Constables.
