History

The City of Hamilton's Act of Incorporation in 1847 allowed for the appointment of a Chief Constable and an unlimited number of sub-constables. Three were initially appointed. Over the years as the population grew, so did the police force. In 1872 responsibility for the force was transferred to a Board of Police Commissioners. In 1973 the Hamilton Police Force was replaced by the Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Police.
