When it comes to merging - please remember that the Port of Dover Police and the Port of Liverpool Police are unique in that they are their own serpatate police forces - unlike the other which are just connected to territotial police forces.

This is one reason why I suggested merging them into a list of police forces. It is also okay to merge each into its individual port-related article, much the same way that some city police departments redirect to their city. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 14:02, 1 July 2008 (UTC)


I have just carried out something of an overhaul of this article. I've structured it into sections and added citations to reliable third party sources in order to make information verifiable. I've also removed certain information that can't be verified (I did look, trust me!), but I would be glad to see such material re- inserted IF it can be referenced. Any question or comments on my editing would be gladly received on my talk page. HJ Mitchell (talk) 03:04, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Employed by...?[edit]

As these police are supposed to be enforcing the law in these locations, why does it seem from their cards that they are employed by Peel Ports? Surely this is a massive conflict of interest were suspected criminal activity by Peel Ports to be being reported? DiverScout (talk) 10:56, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Jurisdiction and linked matters[edit]

There appears to be some confusion in the juridiction of this police force from some annon editors. The core jurisdiction of this force remains the port area and 1 mile from same as set out in the 1847 Act. The Marine Navigation Act 2003 does not expand this jurisdiction to England & Wales (please read the legislation to see). It expands it to the police area of the Chief Constable who has consented to allow port police officers to use police power in relation to port area policing matters only. Generally what has happened is a port police force has applied to the Chief Constable of the police area that the port sits in meaning the ports police officers have police powers in relation to port policing matters anywhere in their residing police area. For example, Port of Dover Police have applied to Kent Chief Constable and receieved consent to use police powers in relation to Dover Port matters anywhere in Kent. As a result practically this means Port of Dover police officers can transport prisoners to any Kent custody suite without worrying about jurisdiction or could do an arrest enquiry for a person alleged to have committed theft at the port at an address anywhere in Kent without having to involve Kent Police officers (as they previously had to).

Also, the anon editor has deleted that Merseyside Police have concurrent jurisdiction in the port area - they do. Every part of England and Wales forms part of a police area and ultimately it is the Chief Constable of each territorial force (in this case Merseyside Police) who have statutory responsibility for law and order anywhere in their force area even if a specialist or port police service also operates at a location. I would ask the anon editor to discuss any changes here as there does appear to be misunderstanding... Bowchaser (talk) 11:04, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
