General Order No. 277 17th July 1906 Motor Car Act 1903 Memos to Superintendents dated 3rd May 1906 and 1st June 1906 are hereby cancelled: The Chief Constable has already pointed out that in his opinion, the ordinary Police trap timing motorists over short distances, is not only a source of annoyance to motorists over a short distances, is not only a source of annoyance to motorists but does not as a rule, protect the public against dangerous and reckless driving, and he therefore directs with a view to checking the same, that steps will be taken to test the speed at which cars travel through the County generally, and Superintendents will arrange for Constables in uniform to be stationed as near mile posts as possible, but at dangerous points, cross roads, villages or other places where it is considered that it would be dangerous for motor cars to proceed at an excessive speed, and the duty will be performed at such hours, and on such days -not only Saturdays or Sundays but other days when many motorists may be expected on the highway, and at evenings when motorists from towns are likely to be having a run out after business hours for the purpose of taking the identification letter and numbers of all cars and noting the exact time etc.on cards furnished for this purpose, great care must be exercised by the Constable in entering on the cards the precise moment the cars pass the points at which they are on duty, if the time is over half a minute, but not up to next minute it must be reckoned as half a minute, and the odd seconds in favour of the motorist, and they will also state on the card, in the Column provided for that purpose, the exact place at which they were stationed, and whether in a village or at a dangerous place, cross roads, etc. Specimen entry as below:- No. of Car or Motor Cycle Exact Time car etc. passed Point where PC on duty and time at such point Direction in which car etc. is proceeding Car A.B. 15 3.231/2 pm Dangerous place at the pump in the village of Tarvin 3 to 4.30pm Northwich Car M/415 5. 171/2 pm At Cross Road near Abbey Arms Hotel Oakmere 5pm to 6.30pm Chester Car M/600 8.42pm Village of Barbridge 8 to 9pm Nantwich In the event of it being found necessary to station Constables at places where there is not a milestone, so as to be at dangerous places, cross roads, the odd distance must be carefully ascertained by measuring from the nearest milestone, and then adding the distance to the full number of miles travelled. It will be remembered that the longer the distance checked the better. As an example take the Chester and Northwich or Nantwich Road: One Police Constable, at Tarvin Village: One Police Constable at Monkey Lodge, Sandiway of junction of this road with Tarporley and Cuddington Road. One Police Constable at Tarporley Four Lane End: When Constables on this duty have reasonable and fair grounds to suppose that any Motor Car is being driven beyond the speed limit they will be perfectly justified in stopping such car and for the purpose of taking the name and address of the driver. Superintendents will be held responsible for seeing that the watches in the possession of the Constables performing the duty agree, and in order that there may not be any mistakes, the Chief Constable directs that the watches will be compared and checked by Superintendent's watches in the presence of the Constables who must meet Superintendents for the purpose on the date the duty is performed both before and after the timing, and on the latter occasion the cards filled up by Constables will be handed to the Superintendents. If necessary for the purpose of carrying out this duty Constables may use their bicycles and when such is done the fact will be reported to the Chief Constable and an application for mileage at the same time the cards are forwarded to Head Quarters. Superintendents will abstract from the cards filled up by Constables the necessary particulars relating to all motor cars which have exceeded the speed limit of 20 miles per hour, such information will be entered on Div. Form DD/3 and be forwarded together with the Constable's cards,( on the latter cards Superintendents will underline in red ink underline the number any car to which special attention is drawn)so as to arrive at Head Quarters each Tuesday morning, but it will not be necessary for Superintendents to write reports when forwarding same, except there are circumstances relating to any particular car to which it is desirable to draw the Chief Constable's special attention. Immediately on receipt of the Chief Constable's instructions, to prosecute, enquiries will forthwith be made to ascertain the owner of the car, in order that the drivers name and address may be procured and when this is obtained, no time must be lost in giving the necessary notice to the driver of intended prosecution, in accordance with Section 9 (2) of the Motor Car Act 1903. The Chief Constable considers that the best way to obtain information as to the drivers will be for Superintendents to communicate with the local Police of the district in which the owners of cars reside requesting that the necessary enquiries might be made should any difficulty be experienced in this method of obtaining name and address of "driver" same to be reported to the Chief Constable. The Chief Constable further directs that at the hearing of the cases Superintendents will themselves be prepared to give evidence as to comparing the watches, and the number of dangerous points four lane ends, cross roads and roads converging etc. and use of the ordnance maps which clearly shows the exact distance between the points at which Constables have been stationed. The Chief Constable feels satisfied that if this method of checking the speed by motors is intelligently carried out it must have a good effect in preventing the very furious driver of motors by some persons when passing through the County. The Chief Constable takes this opportunity of calling attention to G.O. 159/05; In consequence of the introduction of motor cars, bicycles and other rapid mean of travelling on high roads, the duties of the police in Rural as well as Urban Districts has been materially increased in regulating traffic, and it behoves the Police to act with fairness and intelligence so as to keep the roads as far as possible free from obstruction and danger for all users thereof. This Order will be read to all Constables at three successive monthly parades and Superintendents will report to the Chief Constable on 31st October 1906 that such has been done.

(2) Any Constable may take into custody without warrant any person who in any Street or public place sells, or exposes, offers, or has in his possession for sale any pirated copies of any such musical work as may be specified in any general written authority addressed to the Chief Officer of Police, and signed by the apparent owner of the Copyright in such work or his agent thereto authorised in writing requesting the arrest, at the risk of such owner, of all persons found committing offences under this Section in respect of such work, or who offers for sale any pirated copies of any such specified musical work by personal canvas or by personally delivering advertisements or circulars. The Chief Constable is in possession of a general authority addressed to him, and signed by the agent on behalf of the owners of the copyright in the musical works specified in the schedule to such authority, consequently Constables will be justified in acting under this Section in the case of pirated copies of any musical work named in the schedule. Generally speaking, pirated music consists of all music which has not on the front page the name and address of a publisher, in legible type, and, as a rule, it is sold by persons in the street, market places etc. and sometimes hawked from door to door. Section 1(3) A copy of every written authority addressed to a Chief Officer of the Police under this Section shall be open to inspection at all reasonable hours by any person without payment of any fee and any person may take copies of, or make extracts from any such authority. Section 2 (1) If a Court of summary jurisdiction is satisfied on oath that there is reasonable ground for suspecting that an offence against this Act is being committed on any premises, the Court may grant a search warrant authorising the Constable named therein to enter the premises between the hours of six of the clock in the morning and nine of the clock in the evening, and, if necessary, to use force for making such entry, whether by breaking, or otherwise, and to seize any copies of any musical work or any plates in respect of which he has reasonable ground for suspecting that an offence against the Act is being committed. (2) All copies of any musical work and plates seized under this Section shall be brought before a court of summary jurisdiction and if proved to be to be pirated copies or plates intended to be used for the printing or reproduction of pirated copies, shall be forfeited and destroyed or otherwise dealt with as the court think fit. With a view of making Section 2 effective the Chief Constable directs that all ranks will immediately report to the Superintendent of the Division, anything which comes to their knowledge leading them to suppose that there is any printing or storage of pirated music or catalogues at any place within the County in order that the Superintendent may communicate with the music publishers Association, Queens Hall, Langham Place, London. W. On the matter and request that a search warrant may be obtained, if such is deemed advisable. Section 3: In this Act The expression "music work" means musical work in which there is a subsisting copyright, and which has been registered in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act 1842, or of the International Copyright Act 1844, which registration may be effected notwithstanding anything in the International Copyright Act 1886: The expression "plates" includes any stereotype or other plates, stones, matrices, transfers or negatives used or intended to be used for printing or reproducing copies of any musical work: Provided that the "expressions" "printed copies" and "plates" shall not, for the purpose of this Act, be deemed perforated music rolls used for playing mechanical instruments, or records used for the reproduction of sound waves, or the matrices or other appliances by which such rolls or records respectively are made. In the event of the copyright in any of the works being disrupted it may be necessary to produce to the Court the certificate of registration at Stationers Hall, and a communication by letter, telegram or telephone to the music Publishers Association Queens Hall, Langham Place, London will ensure the requisite certificates being immediately forwarded. Copies of the Act of Parliament are forwarded for the information of Superintendents, together with an explanatory letter on the Act by the Solicitor to the music Publishers Association, and copy of the general written authority with schedule attached, and it will be borne in mind that the latter will be open to inspection in accordance with Section 1(3). The Chief Constable directs that Superintendents will explain the provisions of the Act of Parliament to all members of their Divisions, and instruct them clearly how to act in matters relating to the sale etc. pirated music.

General Order No. 503 24th December 1906 Dogs Act 1906 Copies of the above Act of Parliament, which comes into operation on 1st January 1907, are forwarded herewith and the Chief Constable directs that the same will be kept in the Guard Books at Divisional Head Quarters. The Act will be carefully perused by Superintendents who will clearly explain the important parts of same to the Constables in order that the provisions are enforced. Section 1 Of the Act deals with the liability of owners of dogs for injury to cattle (which expression includes Horses, Mules, Asses, Sheep, Goats and Swine) Whenever any report of sheep worrying or other injury is made to the Police Constables will forthwith make enquiries and render any assistance they can in ascertaining to whom the dogs belong, and if any reliable information can be obtained the names and addresses will be furnished to the owners of the injured animals to enable them, should they think fit to take proceedings. Section 1 (4) Provides that where a dog is proved to have injured cattle or chased a sheep, it may be dealt with under Section 2 of The Dogs Act 1871, as a dangerous dog, and the Chief Constable directs that this line of action should be taken. Second 2 Gives power to the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries to make certain Orders, as to Dogs and the Board has issued The Dogs Order of 1906, No. 7124, authorising Local Authorities to make Regulations as to the wearing of collars by dogs under the latter order. The Executive Committee for this County have made Regulations requiring dogs to war collars with owner's names and addresses thereon. The provisions of this new Order, copies of which will be sent to Divisions are practically the same as those which have been in operation in this County for many years in the past. Section 3 (1) The Police will continue to seize all dogs found on highways, and places of public resort, which ae not wearing collars as prescribed by the Order of Local Authority dated 19th November 1906, and proceedings for breaches of the New Order will continue to be taken exactly as in the past. Certified copies of the New Order are hereby forwarded herewith and the same will be carefully kept (not fastened) inside the Guard Books for Acts of Parliament at Divisional Head Quarter Offices for production at Courts of Summary Jurisdiction, when offences for breaches of the Order is being dealt with. A new Form M/36 on which Constables are to at once report particulars relating to the seizure of all dogs, will be sent out hereafter and from these Forms the necessary information will be entered in the Occurrence Book and Register of Dogs seized, after which the Form will be returned to the Section in order that the last five lines on same may be filled in when the dog has been finally disposed of, and the Form will again be transmitted to Divisional Head Quarter Office. Section 3 (2) All such dogs will be detained at Police Stations as heretofore, care being taken that every endeavour is made to find owners, and, if successful, a Notice Form M/47 will be forthwith served upon such person (as below) Section 3 (3) (a) By delivering it to the persons on whom it is to be served. Or: (b) By leaving it at that person's usual or last known place of abode or at the address given on the collar: Or: (c) By forwarding it by post in a prepared letter addressed to that person at his usual last known place of abode. Or, at the address given on the collar: Whenever Constables serve these Notices the fact will be entered in the Duty Books. Section 3 (4) If the owner claims the dog he must be called upon to pay all expenses incurred by reason of its detention. Dogs which are not owned, after having been kept the required number of days will be destroyed by poison (prussic acid) or in such a manner as to cause immediate death with as little pain as possible. In order to strictly comply with the requirements of this Section, it may be necessary for dogs to be kept beyond seven days, for instance if the owner of the dog is not discovered until six days after the seizure of the dog, a Notice must then be served upon him, but it will be remembered that the dog cannot be destroyed until seven days have elapsed after the service of Notice. Section 3 (5) No dog will be given or sold for any purpose except by the special permission of the police Constable. Section 3 (6 &7) A Register in which to enter particulars of all dogs seized will be forwarded in due course to each Divisional Head Quarters Office, where it will be kept, and be available for inspection by any member of the public, in payment of a fee of 1s/-: Section 3 (8) Provides that dogs detained at Police Stations must be properly fed and maintained, and the Chief Constable directs that the following rules as to their keep, etc. will continue to be adhered to: 1 Feed once daily only, and that feed to be a good one, and given at night. 2. Allow dogs the chance of always having clean water to drink. 3. Give dogs a run out in the yard for a few minutes (when they will discharge their urine) before bed time. 4. Give a good warm comfortable bed. Puppies will require feeding more frequently than full grown dogs. Section 3(9) Provides that expenses, in connection with stray dogs shall in future be charged against the Police Fund (instead of the County Rate as heretofore) and that any money received shall be paid to the credit of the Police Fund. Three pence per dog for the keep of each dog will be entered on Form F/31. The cost of destruction of dogs will be entered on Form F/32 to which the necessary signatures must be obtained as receipts for the money paid, the total on each Form (F31 and F32) being entered separately, quarterly in the Cash Book and Contingent Account, under the heading "Expenses in relation to Dogs" thus; Maintenance of dogs as per Form F/31: Cost of destruction of dogs as per Form F/32. To make provision for the above:- Column No. 17 in Contingent Account Div. Form F/4 will be divided so as to make two headings: 1. Miscellaneous. 2. Expenses in relation of dogs And in the "Summary of Expenses" on Form F/4 a further entry will be underneath "Miscellaneous" "18" Expenses in relation to dogs". Owners claiming lost dogs will be charged the sum of -/3d per day for the maintenance of same and the amounts handed to Superintendents who will give a receipt from the counterfoil check receipt Book, and enter the amount in the Cash Book in Column "Police Rates". This also applied to fees for the inspection of the Register of Dogs Seized. The sums will be entered monthly on Form F/21 Thus: "William Johnson Maintenance of Dog 5s/- 3d-" John Edwards Inspection of Register 1s/.0d- Care will be taken that the correct amount is always charged to the owner and that the same agrees exactly with the sum to be entered on Form F/31 and charged in the Contingent Account for the maintenance of the dog. All expenses for keep of all dogs detained must be charged in Police Account and all monies received must be credited.

General Order No. 505 28th December 1906 Railway Warrants It having come to the knowledge of the Chief Constable that a member of the Constabulary had allowed a Railway Warrant in his possession to be used for the purpose of enabling persons who were not members of the Constabulary to travel at a reduced rate, calls the special attention of the Force to the fact that these Railway Warrants must be used only when Constables are actually on duty and travelling by Railway at the public expense. In order to check and prevent the possibility of any Railway Warrants being used for other than the proper purposes, Superintendents will be most careful to see that the counterfoils of the said warrants are invariably attached to the claims for repayment of travelling expenses and special duty allowance, and that the printed numbers of such counterfoils received from the various Constables are consecutive. Should any numbers be missing a report to the cause will be forwarded to the Chief Constable.
