The Portsmouth Police Staff records are held with the Portsmouth History Centre. Findmypast has digitised and transcribed the collection. The Portsmouth Police Service was formed in January 1836. The city had its own police force from 1836 until 1967. The city’s fire brigade was a branch of the police force when it was first formed. The Portsmouth Dockland Police force was a branch of the Metropolitan Policy. For those records, check the Metropolitan Police records at the National Archives.
