Picture: The four new Constables with Portland Port’s Chief Police Officer
On the 27th February four of Portland Port’s Police Support Officers attended Weymouth Magistrates Court to be attested to the office of Constable.
The new Police Constables will continue to receive extensive training to support them in their new role.
Bill Reeves, the CEO of Portland Port said ‘It was a proud day for the new Constables and Portland Port. As our business continues to expand, the increased capabilities of Portland Port Police will bring additional security to the port’s tenants and users.”
Portland Port Chief Police Officer, Inspector James Grant added ‘We are pleased to welcome these new constables into the Portland Port Police force. With the increase of operations at Portland Port, especially cruise ships, the extra ability to protect our shores from the ever-increasing security threat will be improved by their presence on duty.’

At the end of every cruise season the port reviews it’s entire operation with the aim of continually improving the service it provides. As part of the ports improvement strategy, research has been undertaken over the last three years which has yielded some fantastic results for the local area. The research has been based on the activities that cruise passengers undertake whilst in port and helps put to bed the myth that all cruise passengers visiting Portland Port go to Stonehenge.
