Scottish North Eastern Counties Constabulary - History


The Scottish North Eastern Counties Constabulary was formed on 16 May 1949 when the existing forces of Aberdeenshire Constabulary, Banffshire Constabulary, Kincardineshire Constabulary and Moray & Nairn Constabulary amalgamated.

However, earlier amalgamations of the smaller Burgh forces had already taken place as follows. Aberdeenshire Constabulary was formed in 1840 and in 1866 amalgamated with the Fraserburgh Burgh force which had been formed in 1859.

In 1886, Banffshire Constabulary (formed in 1840) amalgamated with the Banff Burgh force (formed in 1859) and in 1870 it also amalgamated with Macduff Burgh (also formed in 1859).

Elginshire Constabulary (formed in 1840) amalgamated in 1886/87 with the Forres Burgh and Nairn Burgh forces (both formed in 1859). It was renamed Morayshire Constabulary in 1890 and in 1893 it amalgamated with the Elgin Burgh force (formed in 1850).

Moray & Nairn Constabulary was formed in 1930 with the amalgamation of Elginshire Constabulary and Nairnshire Constabulary (formed in 1850).

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    There are two great unknown forces to-day, electricity and woman, but men can reckon much better on electricity than they can on woman.
    Josephine K. Henry, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 15, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    We may pretend that we’re basically moral people who make mistakes, but the whole of history proves otherwise.
    Terry Hands (b. 1941)

    I believe that in the history of art and of thought there has always been at every living moment of culture a “will to renewal.” This is not the prerogative of the last decade only. All history is nothing but a succession of “crises”Mof rupture, repudiation and resistance.... When there is no “crisis,” there is stagnation, petrification and death. All thought, all art is aggressive.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
