P.C. Josser is a 1931 British comedy film directed by Milton Rosmer and starring Ernie Lotinga, Robert Douglas and Garry Marsh. It was made by Gainsborough Pictures at the Islington Studios in London.[1] It is sometimes confused with another film Doctor Josser K.C. which was released the same year.

The film is based on a 1926 stage play The Police Force, written by Lotinga himself, about a discharged policeman who is able to prevent dishonesty in the horseracing world.
