Some details from the United Service Journal (Apr 1834), related to the police force at Portsmouth:

- Each man received a book of regulations
- Constables received 19s per week with an allowance for clothes, hats and boots.
- Consisted of one director (a naval lieutenant), three inspectors, three sergeants, and 40 constables.
- The force was divided into three divisions.
- Uniforms to resemble that of London police force.

I have the honour to be, &c.
