The Port of Portland Police are a body of special constables attested under section 79 of the Harbours, Docks, and Piers Clauses Act 1847 (as incorporated by Portland Harbour Revision Order 1997).[1][2] They were established in 1997 when the Portland Harbour Authority Ltd. bought the port from the British Government.[3] The act uses the term 'special constable'; at the time this act was passed 'special constable' meant any constable who was not a member of a territorial police force
