The Municipal Corporations Act 1835 changed the landscape of policing in the West Country for all time. Over 20 years later, the mighty county constabularies of Cornwall and Devon arrived, further enriching the complex picture of law enforcement in the two counties.How they rose and how they fell through many decades of abolitions and amalgamations is a story worth telling, and in the 50th year of the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary, all the more reason to preserve and celebrate it before it is lost to time.
