TitleStanding joint Committee Minute Books
DescriptionPrior to 1889, a Police committee of quarter sessions represented the power and duties of the justices over the police force (minutes survive among the Quarter Sessions records). Under the 1888 Local Government Act, these powers were transferred to the Standing Joint committee, made up of equal numbers of justices and county councillors. The committee had exclusive control of all buildings used for police and quarter sessions purposes - for minutes of the buildings committee see 1/7/1-2. The 1964 Police Act abolished the Standing Joint committee replacing it with a Police committee of the County Council with magistrates forming one third of its membership. For Police committee minutes see 1/58/1-3.
