As of 2004 the force had an establishement of one Chief Officer, three Inspectors, six sergeants and thirty eight constables. The force investigate all offences committed in the port area but receive specialist support and assistance from Kent Police (the Home Office force covering the area) when required.

Officers of this force are sworn in as constables under section 79 of the Harbours, Docks & Piers Clauses Act 1847. As a result officers have the full powers of a constable on any land owned by Dover Harbour Board and at any place within one mile of any owned land.

Officers in this force wear similar uniforms to their colleagues in other forces throughout the country.
