My great grandfather, James Smart (1845-1916), is reputed to have been Gala Burgh constable in the 1870s and that he and his wife Janet Davidson lived in the police office. Can anyone enlarge on this ? or advise me as to any records that may be of help.

I understood the BFHSociety were transcribing the local Lothian and Border Police Records maybe someone can updated us to the current situation.

The lothian and Border HQ at Fettes, Edinburgh i understand do hold some records but to what extent I dont know.
