Acts and Documents Relevant to the Constitution of Policing in England and Wales
Acts and documents relevant to the constitution of policing in England and Wales

This table provides a chronological framework to help your understanding of the development of policing and the police service in England and Wales. Its focus is upon the constitutional position of policing rather than the practice or the sociology of policing, each of which deserve a similar table in their own right but is beyond the scope of this volume.

Acts in bold are of particular significance in the constitutional history of English policing, and are Acts the titles and years of which students should be able to cite in an exam/essay. Shaded Statutes distinguish between statutes and strategic documents.
