Leicestershire Constabulary is the Home Office police force responsible for policing Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland in England. Its headquarters are at Enderby, Leicestershire.

The current Temporary Chief Constable is Chris Eyre.



Leicestershire Constabulary was formed in 1839. In 1951 it amalgamated with Rutland Constabulary to form Leicestershire and Rutland Constabulary and in 1967 merged with Leicester City Police to form Leicester and Rutland Constabulary. After the Local Government Act 1972 came into force in 1974 it was once more renamed Leicestershire Constabulary.

In 1965, Leicestershire and Rutland Constabulary had an establishment of 748 officers and an actual strength of 659.[1]

Proposals made by the Home Secretary on March 20, 2006 would have seen the force merge with the other four East Midlands forces to form a strategic police force for the entire region. These plans were dropped in 2007.[2]
