    The Essex Constabulary was formed in February 1840 following the passing of the Rural Police Act. As the name suggests, their role was mainly rural policing as the county borough towns of Maldon and Colchester had their own borough constables. Some parts of Essex such as Chigwell were patrolled by the Metropolitan Police Force of London.
