Under the Municipal Corporations Act the councillors of Leicester were required to appoint a Watch Committee and to make arrangements for the proper policing of the town.

The Leicester Borough Police force was established in January 1836. The first Inspector and "Head Constable" was Frederick Goodyer who had previously served with The Metropolitan Police in London since 1829. There were initially five sergeants and fifty constables in the force.

The last Chief Constable of the Leicester City Police was Robert Mark who later became the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.
