ActivityThe Police (Scotland) Act 1857 (20 & 21 Vict., c.72) required all counties in Scotland which had not already done so to establish and maintain a police force. County police forces were administered by a police committee or a constabulary committee made up of commissioners of supply, the lord lieutenant of the county and the sheriff. The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 (52 & 53 Vict., c.50) transferred the powers of the former police committees or constabulary committees to standing joint committees.
