T2369. The Manchester Ship Canal Company had its own Dock Police, whose jurisdiction extended over the entire length of the Ship Canal. The force was established in 1893, just before the opening of the Canal. It was still in existence until January 1993, when the remaining 25 officers were replaced with guards from a private security firm. The former Port Police Office on the Quays is now used as snack shop. The large building visible in the background is the Dock Office.
