Our bye laws at blahblah borough council are under the 1875 act and s12/s15 of the 1906 open spaces act so in theory the one covering hindrance Carrys a power of arrest as soon as details are refused worth knowing

I have never heard of such forces before, although I am not surprised as I know campuses around the UK have independent forces (or used to).

Just those two, I thought it would have been a bit more geographically diverse. Thanks for letting me know I knew some did anyhow. :)

One force I know exists, and is somewhat local to me is the Port of Glasgow Police. That surprised me that such a force exists though. I know in Belfast they have 'Harbour Police', which I thought to be normal as they may act as an anti-terrorist force given the history...

I am unsure if they are still active, I have ever seen them in the flesh. I just seen them being mentioned on this site and I tried to look into them. They do not have an official website though. Very hard force to find out about if interested in that field of work.

The Universities Act 1825 only applies to Cambridge and Oxford universities. Perhaps this was driven by Oxbridge snobbery?

 

Interestingly enough, the constables are sworn in by the Chancellor or Vice Chancellor, rather than a Magistrate.

 

Also, they retain civil liability for their own actions. So, if they do something wrong then they can be personally sued. This contrasts with a police force, where the force itself can find itself in the dock or is the one making out of court settlements.
