Falmouth Docks Police is a small, specialised non-Home Office police force responsible for policing Falmouth Docks.

Officers of this force are sworn in as special constables under section 79 of the Harbours, Docks, and Piers Clauses Act 1847. As a result, officers have the full powers of a constable on any land owned by Falmouth Docks & Engineering Company and at any place within one mile of any owned land.

Any serious or major incidents or crime becomes the responsibility of the local police force, the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.
