The Kingstown Harbour Police was established in 1836 by virtue of section 59 of the Kingstown Harbour Act, and is the oldest surviving police force in Ireland. The original uniform consisted of a blue cloth jacket with red cuffs, grey pantaloons, blue waistcoat and a glazed hat. In 1924 the name was changed to the "Dún Laoghaire Harbour Police".
