Why not a Cornish Stannary Police Force?

In the Basque Country there are four different police forces – the Guardia Civil, National Police, Municipal Police and the Ertzaintza. In Navarre (a province of the Basque Country), the Foruzaingoa are the Ertzaintza equivalent.

The Basque County also has its own distinct legal system in the shape of the Foral Laws. The various Basque Provinces have regarded these laws as tantamount to a Constitution and today the laws are still zealously guarded and the majority upheld.

With its own Stannary Laws, Parliament and Courts there is no reason why a distinct Cornish Police force should not exist to uphold the law in Cornwall.
