Deadly Beat: Inside the Royal Ulster Constabulary
Deadly Beat: Inside the Royal Ulster Constabulary
Considered by some to be one of the finest police forces in the world, the officers of the Royal Ulster Constabulary are looked upon by others as evil storm-troopers of Unionism and the British Government. The RUC is now a force undergoing sweeping change in response to Republican demands, yet for 30 years it stood alongside the British Army in a war that killed over 300 policemen and injured thousands more. For 14 years, Richard Latham, an Englishman, served as a police officer, both in England and in Northern Ireland, before transferring from the English Special Branch to the RUC in 1991. This is his story, giving his insight into the grim reality of policing Ulster. The book brings to light incidents of racism and religious bias experienced by the author himself. It looks behind the scenes to reveal the extremes of behavior, alcohol abuse, womanizing, and petty corruption that happened during his time with the RUC.

Caithness-shire Constabulary – Constable George Reid

Caithness-shire Constabulary - Constable George Reid
GEORGE REID (1838 – 1879)
Police Constable, Caithness-shire Constabulary

(the photograph was taken while George was still in Yorkshire)

George Reid was born in 1838 (November or December) at Forss Village, near Thurso. He married Janet Forsyth at Canisbay on 9 August 1867.

He joined the West Riding of Yorkshire Constabulary on 11 July 1870, at the age of 31 years and 8 months. It is recorded in the West Riding force’s personal records that PC Reid was 5 feet 11 inches in height, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was allocated the shoulder number of 697 and was posted to Keighley. His previous employer is shown as "John Banks" (Banks is a Caithness surname).

He was promoted to 2nd Class Constable on 16 July 1871 and he attained 1st Class Constable on 30 September 1872. He left the West Riding Constabulary on 29 May 1873, being presented with an address by his colleagues.

It would appear that he left West Yorkshire in order to transfer to his home Force, the Caithness-shire Constabulary, and he was pictured in a group photograph of the Caithness force of the period, looking frail and a great deal older than his actual age. He died at Mey on 21 October 1879, aged only 42 years. His occupation on his Death Certificate was ‘Police Constable’.

This is the text of the memorial document presented to him on leaving Yorkshire:-

Presentation to P.C. No. 697 George Read (sic) made at Haworth, near Keighley on Wednesday the 28th day of May 1873

We the under-signed members of the West Riding of Yorkshire Constabulary, and forming the Haworth section of the Keighley division, having learnt with regret that it is your intention to sever your connection with us, take with great pleasure the opportunity afforded us of presenting you with the address, accompanied by a silver mounted walking stick, as a token of respect and esteem.
For upwards of 2 years, the time you have served in our section as constable, we have always observed your peaceful, straight-forward, upright disposition, and kindness to the public and your comrades, and although it is with the deepest regret we have heard of your proposed departure from amongst us, we at the same time wish you and your family good health and prosperity in your new undertaking, and trust that although we may never associate again, you may live to a ripe old age, respected by all around you.

Lanarkshire Constabulary

Lanarkshire Constabulary
Lanarkshire Constabulary Range Rover, used for Traffic Patrol duties on the A74. Taken in 1975 prior to becoming part of Strathclyde Police. The rearmost blue light is on an extending hydraulic pole with floodings attached. This was the only car in Lanarkshire fitted with this floodlight and the two roof mounted spotlights at the front.. Note the roof mounted air horns – totally alien in Lanarkshire but part of the Strathclyde Spec. Lanarkshire air horns were fitted behind the grill to prevent them being blocked by snow (perhaps Strathcyde i.e Glasgow did not have snow!!)

THE THIN GREEN LINE: The History of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC 1922-2001
Formed out of the Royal Irish Constabulary at the time of Partition, the RUC’s history is predictably a turbulent one right through to its replacement in 2001 by the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Few police forces in the world have suffered so grievously as the RUC and this book is a fitting memorial to the sacrifices made in the interests of the civil population it was determined to protect. Throughout its history, it has not only had to perform normal police duties but contain the ever present IRA threat. In 1969, the climate changed and ushered in a new and even more violent era of sectarian strife. The emergence of extreme nationalist organizations posed grave problems and, with the RUC in a prime role, the position of the Chief Constable was hugely important. This book tells the story of a remarkable police force without fear or favor. Ironically its reward for containing a hugely challenging internal security situation and at the same time policing the community traditionally was its disbandment.
