‘Get into a Crack Force and earn £20 a Month and all found…': The Influence of the Palestine Police upon Colonial Policing 1922–19481
The development of a ‘colonial' police model has typically been linked to the Irish Constabularies. Little consideration has been given to the influences of the Palestine Police. The British section of the Palestine Gendarmerie was created in 1920 with the recruitment of former members of the Royal Irish Constabulary and Black and Tans. Meanwhile training for colonial police officers continued in Northern Ireland until 1932. At this point it was the Palestine Police that provided the recruiting and training ground for senior colonial policemen until its disbandment in 1948. Thereafter, its ‘colonial' policing practices and traditions were carried throughout the British Empire and Commonwealth by its former members.
