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.’

The start of Portland Port's cruise season has been a spectacular one; the first ship was the 20th visit by a Phoenix Reisen vessel. They are the first cruise line to reach this milestone at Portland Port so to commemorate such a momentous occasion, the port commissioned a special hand carved Portland stone plaque that will be presented to the cruise line. This has been followed by the arrival of the enormous Norwegian Breakaway that docked at the port this morning. It is not only the Norwegian Breakaway's inaugural call to Portland Port, but she is also the largest ship to ever call at Portland Port.
