- Manchester Airport Police
The Airport Police were sworn in as special constables under section 18 of the Manchester Corporation Act 1954. This gave them all the powers and privileges of a constable in the airport. The Corporation had the power to suspend/terminate the appointment of constables.
In 1975 the force had 68 members. Following the designation of Manchester Airport under the Policing of Airports Act 1974, responsibility for policing the airport passed from the Airport Police to the local territorial police force, Greater Manchester Police, on 1 August 1976, and the airport police officers were transferred to Greater Manchester Police on that date.
