The Chief Constable considers that the above course is all the more necessary when it is remembered that the disease has been found to exist among the tramping fraternity, with which the Police are often brought in very close contact when questioning and otherwise dealing with this class, and also as members of the Constabulary run considerable risks of infection by reason of their duties in visiting lodging houses, tramps wards etc. the necessity for re-vaccination will at once be recognised.

The Chief Constable understands that in many districts Public Health Authorities have made arrangements for vaccinations to be performed by their Medical Officers or Public Vaccination Officers free of charge, and in making the necessary enquiries Superintendents will bear this in mind.

Every effort should be made to complete the evidence in charges against children at the first hearing in order to avoid the necessity of remands, and if the youthful offender is committed to an Industrial or Reformatory School there should not be any difficulty in arranging the medical examination (if such is necessary) and conveyance to the School named in the Order the same day as the case is disposed of, but if this cannot be possibly be done then the children will be taken to the nearest Workhouse and the Master at such Institution requested to be good enough to see that they are safely kept there until removal by the Police, as the Chief Constable is of the opinion that it is very undesirable for young offenders to be kept in Police cells. The necessity for sending a child to the workhouse, should however, very seldom occur if the above instructions are carried out. It may be useful to here state that the County has some agreement with the following Industrial Schools to take any Cheshire cases therefore delay should not arise by reason of want of Information as to the Industrial School where the children would be received if medically sound etc. Name of Industrial School Whether Boys or Girls Religion Birkenhead Boys Protestant Chester Boys and Girls Protestant Macclesfield Boys Protestant Stockport Boys Protestant Attention is also drawn to the fact that there are always vacancies for suitable boys on board of the Training Ship " Clio". Superintendents and other members of the Constabulary will observe that the object of this Order is to prevent youthful offenders being kept in cells at Police Stations and in dealing with these offenders it will be borne in mind that a much better course is for children to be taken charge by their parents or guardians, or failing that attended to at the Workhouse. General Order No. 54 19th February 1902 Transfer The following transfer will take place on 22nd February 1902. PC 396 William Tudor (single) from South Wirral Division, to Dukinfield, to be stationed at Dukinfield, vice Ratcliffe General Order No. 55 19th February 1902 Licensed Houses Alteration to Premises The Chief Constable directs that whenever any intimation is given to Superintendents that an application is about to be made to the Justices for their approval to any alterations in licensed houses, such will be reported to him, and at the same time the plan of the proposed alteration will be submitted. In forwarding the above Superintendents will invariably state: 1. Whether the proposed alterations, if carried out, will cause increased drinking facilities and if so, in what respect. 2. Whether the proposed alterations, if carried out, will facilitate or otherwise proper Police Supervision of the premises. 3. Whether the licensed premises can be entered by persons residing in adjoining cottages without the occupants of such cottages (by reason of having common back yards etc.) being obliged to go on highways to enter the licensed premises. 4. Any other information which Superintendents are able to afford to the Chief Constable, and which might assist him in arriving at his decisions as to whether it is desirable for the Police to object to the proposed General Order No. 56 20th February 1902 Small Pox Re- Vaccination Referring to reports from Divisions containing a list of the members of the Constabulary who have expressed their willingness to be re-vaccinated the Chief Constable directs that Superintendents will forthwith make arrangements with public vaccination Officers for Constables residing in the respective Districts of such Officers without delay, but it will be understood that if any member of the Force specially desires to be re-vaccinated by his own Medical man the Chief Constable has not any objection thereto, but, of course it cannot be at the County expense. It will be borne in mind that public vaccination Officers are supplied by the Local Government Board with Lymph of the highest quality and purity etc and each public vaccination Officer will, upon request re vaccinate persons residing in his particular district free of charge to the individual. The Chief Constable considers that it is in the interest of the Constables and their families to be re-vaccinated, and he hopes that all members of the Force who have not been re-vaccinated during the past six or seven years will subject themselves to the same, which as a rule causes only slight, temporary, inconvenience. On making arrangements for Constables in Town Beats to be re-vaccinated Superintendents will see that one half of the men are vaccinated one week, and the remainder half the next week. A report to be sent to the Chief Constable on 13th March 1902 containing the names of members of the Force who have been successfully vaccinated.

The Standing Joint Committee do not wish to cast upon these valuable Institutions any additional expense or responsibility with respect to such cases and will sanction the payment of a reasonable amount to such persons as may be engaged by the Police who perform this work, and in order that such expenses may be legal, it will be necessary in such cases for the injured person, if an offence against the law has been committed , to be actually charged with the Offence before the individual who is selected to watch him, is engaged. The Chief Constable has not any objection to the Police watching such person for a few hours, until arrangements can be made for obtaining a person to be employed for this purpose, who must in every way be suitable and acceptable to the Hospital or Infirmary Authority. Whenever cases of this nature arise, the facts will be immediately reported to the Chief Constable, together with names of suitable persons (male or female, as the case requires) and the terms upon which they will be willing to attend at the hospital for the purpose of watching persons during the time they are kept there. If at any time, in consequence of a violent patient or other cause, it is considered that a Constable should be detailed for this duty, full circumstances should be specially reported to the Chief Constable. It must be borne in mind that these cases should be very exceptional and should only include those where the hospital or infirmary authorities absolutely decline to take the responsibility of taking charge of a patient such as a dangerous suicide.

In order to prevent any understanding in this matter the Chief Constable directs that no member of the Constabulary will take part in any procession initiated by Local Authorities, or other bodies without first having received his special sanction to do so, and he takes this opportunity of pointing out to the Constabulary that the Police have full scope and opportunity to perform their many duties with vigilance in properly regulating traffic, preventing accidents and keeping the line of the road clear for the processions.

Every Constable on rural districts will therefore be furnished with a copy of the man's description, and be on alert to secure his apprehension for failing to report.

A Court Summary Jurisdiction upon the application of the owner of the Copyright in any musical work may act as follows:- If satisfied by evidence that there is reasonable ground for believing that pirated copies of such musical work are being hawked, carried about, sold or offered for sale may, by order, authorise a Constable to seize such copies without warrant and to bring them before the court, and the Court on proof that copies are pirated may order them to be destroyed, or to be delivered up to the owner of the copyright for that delivery. 2. If any person shall hawk, carry about, sell or offer for sale any pirated copy of any musical work, every such pirated work, such pirated copy may be seized by any Constable without warrant on the request in writing of the apparent owner of the copyright in such work, or of his agent thereto authorise in writing, and at the risk of such owner. On seizure of any such copies they shall be conveyed by such Constable, before a Court of summary jurisdiction, and, on proof that they are infringements of copy right shall be forfeited or destroyed, or otherwise dealt with as the Court may think fit. 3."Musical Copyright" means the exclusive right to the owner of such copyright under the Copyright Acts in force for the time being to do or to authorise another person to do all or any of the following things in respect of a musical work: 1. To make copies in writing or otherwise of such musical work. 2. To abridge such musical work. 3. To make any new adaptation, arrangement, or setting of such musical work, or of the melody thereof, in any notation or system. "Musical work" means any combination of melody and harmony, or either of them printed, reduced, to writing, or otherwise graphically produced or reproduced. Musical work written, printed, or otherwise reproduced without the consent lawfully given by the owner of the copyright in such work. 4. This Act may be cited as the musical (Summary Proceedings) Copyright Act 1902 and shall come into operation on the first day of October, one thousand, nine hundred and two, and shall apply only to the United Kingdom. As seizures by the Police under Section 2 of this Act must be at the risk of the apparent owner of the Copyright, or his agent authorised in writing, Constables will satisfy themselves that the person who requests him to seize is the apparent owner or his agent in writing, otherwise a third party might make a request of this kind and have no authority for doing so. It would be advisable that the Constable before acting under Section 2 should require that the written request should contain an expressed statement that the writer is the owner, or his authorised agent (and if the latter, the Constable should before seizure insist in seeing the agents written appointment as such) which written request should also contain the name and full address of the person requesting the seizure. All pirated copies seized by the Police will be taken before a Court of Summary Jurisdiction, and the Constable who made the seizure will be present to give evidence as to same. Notice of the date and hour the Copyright will be brought before the Court of Summary Jurisdiction will be given to the alleged owner of the copyright and to the person from whom same was seized, so as to give both an opportunity of attending. All documents relating to proceedings under this Act coming into the possession of the Police will be carefully kept in the Divisional Head Quarters, for future reference, and a detailed entry will be made in the Occurrence Books of any action on the part of the Police.

( Whiffen V Bligh, Queens Bench Divisions) If Superintendents have reason to request Licensing Justices to adjourn any application for the renewal of License, with the view of ultimately serving Notice of objection, they should a the time of making such request, formally state in open Court that they object to the renewal of the said License, and afterwards serve necessary Notice etc. (Daykin V Parker Court of Queen's Bench 17th April 1894) Superintendents will remember that when the Licensing Justices are considering an application for the renewal of a license, evidence of conviction against a previous license-holder is admissible, in support of any objection on the grounds of "disorderly" character" of house.

General Order No 452 15th December 1902 2. Edward V11. Chap. 28 Copies of this important Act of Parliament, which comes into operation on 1st January 1903, are forwarded herewith for the information of the Constabulary, the Chief Constable at directs that they will be kept in the Guard Books at Head Quarters and in the Standing General Order Books in Sections. The Act will be carefully perused by Sergeants, and such Superintendents, Inspectors and Sergeants and such parts of the same as refer to, or come within, the powers of the Police, , in, explained to Constables, in order that the provisions may be enforced. There are a number of amendments in the Law as to drunkenness, and in the Licensing Laws provision now being made for the registration of Clubs, and the Chief Constable considers it well to draw attention to the principal provisions, so far as they affect the powers and duties of the Police. Part 1 Amendment of the law as to drunkenness Section 1 Under this Section the Police are empowered to arrest persons found drunk and incapable, and such persons may when expedient be detained in custody until they can be brought before the Petty Sessions or a Magistrates and need not be released on their own recognizance, when sober, as has been practice hitherto. Constables will exercise discretion in apprehending such persons, and bear in mind that if safety to themselves, and not to the annoyance of others, they should not interfered with. It is only when drunken that persons appear to be incapable of taking care of them-selves that the power of arrest is given, which power now extends to persons drunk and incapable on licensed premises. Section 2 Makes it a special offence to be in charge of a child, apparently under the age of seven years, and give power of arrest. This offence can be adjudicated on by two Justices or a Stipendiary Magistrate only. It is important, not only with the view of suppress, preventing drunkenness, but also of checking and as far as possible, the very great danger to young children, who are unfortunate enough to be in charge of drunken parents or guardians, that the Police should do their utmost to enforce this Section, and where a drunken man or woman is in charge of a child apparently under seven years of age, such persons should be apprehended. Whenever an arrest is made the child must be taken from the prisoner, and, if possible sent home, should there be any suitable person there to take care of the child, but if it is impossible for the Police to find a place where the child can be properly attended to, then arrangements should be made for the child to be taken to the nearest Workhouse. On no account will the Police allow a child, to be placed in a cell with a drunken parent or guardian. The Police will arrange for the child to be under the age of seven years old to be brought to the Court at the hearing of the case, so that the Justices may form an opinion as to whether the child is apparently under the age of seven years. See - Sub Section 3. Section 3 Is intended to remove a doubt as to whether the power of Justices to require persons to recognizances or give surety to be of good behaviour extends to cases of drunkenness. If any person found over commits a breach of the terms of his recognizances he will be, reported for such, and brought before the Justices. In the event of a person who has been ordered to enter into recognizances removing to another place during the period referred to in such recognizances, full particulars will be sent to the Police of the District to which the person removed. Section 4 This is a very important Section, and throws the onus on the licensee of showing that he has taken all reasonable steps to prevent drunkenness on his premises. This alteration should have the effect of materially assisting the Police in prosecutions against licensees charged with permitting drunkenness. The Police will continue to assist publicans in keeping the law by warning the person in charge of the premises if they see a drunken person entering the house, and in helping, at the or his agent, to expel from licensed premises, any person who is drunk, violent, quarrelsome or disorderly. Although the licensee himself is responsible for the proper conduct of his licensed premises, the Chief Constable again points out that he entirely disapproves of any member of the Constabulary watching a drunken person enter a licensed house and after giving sufficient time for such person to be served with intoxicating liquor, visiting the premises with a view to reporting the licensee for an offence against the licensing laws. Section 5 Makes habitual drunkenness a ground for granting a separation order under the Summary Jurisdiction (Married Women) Act 1895 etc. It will be the duty of the Police, when as directed by the Court, to remove an inebriated wife to a Retreat under the Habitual Drunkenness Act, and in all such cases the Police Escort must be accompanied by a matron or other trustworthy woman, unless he, be assisted by the husband or a relative. Expenses incurred by the police in removing a female inebriate under this Section will be entered on Pink Form, and the expenses of female escort engaged by the Police to accompany the prisoner will be entered on the form sent with the S.G.O. 227/94 and be sent to the Chief Constable for his authority to pay, and when sanctioned and paid will be included in Contingent Account Div. Form in column " Conveyance "etc." the cost of the Police escort being on one line, and that of the female escort on the next. Instructions under this Section will be forwarded hereafter, by the Police Authority with reference to Sub-Section (3) Section 6 Prohibits the sale of intoxicating liquor for a period of three years to persons declared by the Court to be Habitual Drunkards, and provides that Regulations shall be made by the Police Authority. Section 7 Imposes a penalty on any person, who, on licensed premises, procures or attempts to procure, drink for consumption on or off the premises by a drunken person or who shall aid and abet any drunken person in obtaining same. Constables, upon being applied to by licensees, will assist them in obtaining the names and addresses of any person offending against this Section. If the Police themselves see any offence against this Section committed, they will, on their own initiative, take proceedings. Section 8 The interpretation of a "public place" is very important, and will in future enable the Police to act, in cases of drunkenness in any place to which the public have access, including such places as Piers, Promenades, Athletic, Fete and football Grounds, Agricultural Show Grounds etc. Part 11 Amendment of Licensing Laws Section 10 Has for its object the dealing with, what are generally known as "Grocers " Licenses" The first Sub - Section requires, with certain exceptions, that a Justice's license shall be obtained in the case of every Excise license under which liquor may be sold by retail to be consumed off the premises. The Second Sub-Section removes the existing limitation on the discretion of Licensing Justices to refuse a license for the sale of liquor by retail to be consumed off the premises, save as in Sub - Section (4) The Police will therefore be enabled to object to new applications for "grocers" licenses and to the renewal of similar licenses now in existence, save as in Sub - Section (4) just in the same manner as in the case of other licenses. Section 11 Is intended to increase the control of Licensing Justices over the structure of licensed premises. It will be the duty of the Police to see that no alterations of the character defined in this Section are made without the consent of the Licensing Justices has been first obtained and in the event of any such alterations being unlawfully made, or commenced, the Police will warn the licensee concerned of the requirements and submit to the Chief Constable a detailed report of the extent of the alterations, in order that he may consider whether to direct the Superintendent to lay an information under Sub- Section (2) The plans referred to in this Section although deposited with the Clerks to the Licensing Justices will, no doubt, be open to the inspection of the Police whenever a sight of same is necessary for any purpose connected with the carrying out of the Licensing Laws and will be found useful in accurately ascertaining the exact limits of licensed premises. It is important that the Police should know what rooms or parts of licensed premises are used for the sale of drink, as distinguished from those rooms or parts not so used, as is their duty to see that only on such public parts is the sale of drink permitted. Whenever any intimation is given to Superintendents that an application is about to be made to the Justices for their approval to any alterations in licensed houses such will be reported to the Chief Constable, and at the same time a plan of the premises showing proposed alterations will be submitted to the Chief Constable. See General Order 55/02 for instructions. Whenever an Order is made under Sub- Section 4 for alterations to licensed premises Superintendents will report details to the Chief Constable, and be particular in observing that the terms of such orders are faithfully carried out. If application is made to the Licensing Justices for consent to alter licensed premises without Superintendents having had an opportunity of inspecting the plans and sending same to Head Quarters for the Chief Constable's instructions, the fact will be brought to the notice of the Justices with a request that consideration of same may be deferred. Section 14 Provides that the General Annual Licensing Meeting shall be held within the first fourteen days of the month of February in each year, and every adjournment thereof shall be held within one month of the date of the General Annual Licensing Meeting Section 15 Is intended to secure that what are generally known as protection orders or temporary authority shall not be granted without the Police having an opportunity of making proper enquiries (at least one week notice to be given to the Superintendent of Police). The Chief Constable directs that upon receipt of these notices Superintendents will make full and careful enquiries as to the character and suitability of the person desiring to obtain temporary authority to sell, and satisfy them-selves beyond all doubt that such person is in every way qualified to hold a license. The Police of the districts in which such person has resided or is known will invariably be communicated with as to what is known about him, and requested to verify testimonials etc. and if the answers are not satisfactory or there are reasonable grounds for believing that the applicant is unsuitable to hold a license, Superintendents will oppose the application, as it is most important that only suitable persons of good character, steady habits etc. should be entrusted with license, Superintendents are held responsible and that the enquiries before directed are made in every case of application for temporary authority, etc. Section 16 The object of this Section is to secure that transfers shall be granted only after proper enquiry, and provides, among other things, that 14 days- notice must be given to the Police Superintendent in all cases of application for application for transfers. The Police enquiry as to character and suitability of proposed licensee, directed under Section 15 will be invariably made. Superintendents will inform Licensing Justices when considering these applications when considering these applications. Whenever an Order is made under Sub- Section 2 as to preventing repeated applications for transfers, the particulars of such order will be entered in Licensing Victuallers Book in red ink, on the next line after last entry concerning licensed house in question thus: "No further applications for transfer to be made "before ..........................................or as the case may be...................................................................................................... Superintendents will have the said book at Court, and be careful to refer to same in all cases of applications for temporary authority transfers etc. to see if any such order has been made to give the Court information as to the number of changes in licensees, and if possible, cause of such changes. Section 17 Amends the law in regard to "occasional Licenses" and should be strictly adhered to. It will be the duty of the Police Superintendents to submit to the Court any information required touching the expediency of granting an occasional license, and in order to obtain any information that may be required Superintendents will at once, on receipt of notice, enquire as to the grounds on which application is to be made, the necessity, or otherwise for such a license, and whether there is likely to be any drunkenness or disorder and further, if the event is a periodical one, enquiries will also be made as to how the licensee conducted his business on prior occasions, and if any drunkenness or disorderly conduct was the result. Whenever occasional licenses are granted Superintendents will remember that is the duty of the Police to see that the conditions, hours etc. on which the licenses are granted are strictly adhered to, and the necessary instructions will be given by Superintendents to the local Police as necessity arises. Part 3 Registration of Clubs Section 24 Provides for the Registrations of Clubs occupying premises which are habitually used for the purpose of a club, and in which intoxicating liquor is supplied to members or their guests. Section 25 Directs that the Clerk to the Justices shall keep a Register of such Clubs within his Division. The object of this portion of the Act is to secure the inclusion in the Register of all Clubs within the scope of the Act, whether good or bad, in order that their existence, their membership, their rules etc. may come under the cognizance of the Police and others. Unsatisfactory, if the information contained in the Return made by the Secretary is inadequate or unsatisfactory, there may arise a suspicion that the Club is a bogus Club, or otherwise of an unsatisfactory nature, and the Chief Constable, upon receiving reports from Superintendents, will consider whether the Police are upon to take steps under Section 28 or Section 29. The Register is to be open to the inspection of an Inspector or Superintendent of Police without fee at all reasonable hours. Section 26 Makes it an offence to supply, or sell, or keep for supply or sale, intoxicating liquor in an unregistered Club, and Section 27 to supply liquor in a Registered Club for consumption off the premises, except to a member (personally) on the premises. Section 28 Provides that a Court of Summary may make an order directing a Club to be struck off the Register on the grounds named therein. In the event of an order being made by the Justices the Police of the district in which The premises are situate will be particular in observing that the terms of such order are strictly enforced. Section 29 Enables a Justice of the Peace to grant a search warrant, and if the Police have at any time good grounds for supposing that a Registered Club is mismanaged (see Section 28 for grounds of which a Club may be struck off the Register) or that intoxicating liquor is sold or supplied at an unregistered Club, the particulars will be reported to the Chief Constable. A Superintendent, Inspector or Sergeant will always be present at the execution of a warrant under this Section, and every care will be taken to properly inspect the premises named in the warrant; written notes should there and then be made of what is observed, the names and addresses of persons etc. found on the premises, and the books, papers etc. that may be seized, so that full and accurate information may be subsequently give to the Justices. The result of the execution of the Search Warrant will be forthwith reported to the Chief Constable, who will then give further orders as to laying information for Summons. The Police are not authorised to enter Clubs except by Search Warrant. General Instructions All offences committed by licensees or Secretaries of Clubs under this Act will be promptly reported to the Chief Constable, who must at the same time be furnished with statements of evidence as directed in General Order 277/98 which will be understood to apply hereto. Full particulars will also be reported to the Chief Constable whenever the Police are of the opinion that there are good grounds for making an application for a Warrant to search the Club premises, for a Club to be struck off the Register, or believing that a false return has been made by a Club Secretary, or any other infringement, or supposed infringe of that part of the Act respecting Clubs. Whenever the Justices order alterations to be made to Licensed premises, or sanction alterations on application, Superintendents will on completion of same inspect the premises and report to the Court and Chief Constable whether such have been faithfully executed in accordance with plans etc. If members of the Constabulary are in doubt as to how to act in any particular matter, they will apply to Superintendents who will, if necessary, refer the question to the Chief Constable for his instructions. Copies of this S.G.O. are forwarded herewith for Sections, and the Chief Constable directs that the same will be neatly placed (not copied) in Sectional Order Books, together with a copy of the Act of Parliament also sent herewith.
