Mid-Anglia Constabulary

A Brief History of the Mid-Anglia Constabulary

The Mid-Anglia Constabulary was the territorial police force responsible for law enforcement in the East of England. The Constabulary was short lived lasting from 1965 to 1974. It was created from the amalgamation of five different forces in the area.

On 1 April 1965 the Cambridgeshire Constabulary amalgamated with the Cambridge City Police, the Isle of Ely Constabulary, the Huntingdonshire Constabulary, and the Peterborough Combined Police (which itself was created in 1947 from a merger of the Liberty of Peterborough Constabulary and the Peterborough City Police) to form the Mid-Anglia Constabulary, with the same boundaries as the current force.

This force initially had an establishment of 805 and an actual strength of 728. The Chief Constable for this new force was Mr Frederick Drayton Porter OBE, QPM (who was formerly the Chief Constable of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridge City Police).

The force was renamed the Cambridgeshire Constabulary in 1974, when the new non-metropolitan county of Cambridgeshire was created by the Local Government Act of 1972 with identical boundaries to the Mid-Anglia Constabulary area.

Ford Anglia's as used by the Mid-Anglia Constabulary

I do not have that much information about the Anglia’s used by the Mid-Anglia Constabulary. All I have seen so far is a single photograph of an Anglia Estate on a Classic Police Facebook Group.
