Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary

Brief History of the Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary

Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary was a short-lived police force operating from 1st April 1967 until 1st April 1974. It was created from a merger of the Liverpool City Police and Bootle Borough Police, and covered the adjacent county boroughs of Liverpool and Bootle.
It was amalgamated under the Local Government Act of 1972 with parts of the Lancashire Constabulary and Cheshire Constabulary to form the Merseyside Police.

Ford Anglia’s used by the Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary

Registered in late 1966, these vehicles were the 'basic' Ford Anglia’s, lacking the full-width chrome-plated radiator grille of the deluxe model. The cars were painted white, had a small blue light on the roof and large "Police" wording on the doors.

The traffic department of the Liverpool City Police did not initially use the Ford Anglia’s as patrol cars, but as Scientific Support vehicles. Following the merger of Liverpool City Police with the Bootle Borough Police, the new motor patrol section used the Ford Anglia’s as patrol cars for a period of two weeks in 1968. The cars were used as a stop gap whilst the Force awaited the late delivery of the new Austin Mini Coopers.
