What restrictions on private lives do police officers have.
1.
A member of a police force shall at all times abstain from any activity which is likely to interfere with the impartial discharge of his duties or which is likely to give rise to the impression, amongst members of the public that it may so interfere; and in particular a member of a police force shall not take any active part in politics.

2.
A member of a police force shall not reside at premises which are not for the time being approved by the chief officer. What this in fact means is that you must seek permission to reside at your proposed address. Local processes on how this is accomplished will vary but you will not be surprised to hear that there is usually a form to fill in.

3.
(1) A member of a police force shall not, without the previous consent of the chief officer receive a lodger in a house or quarters with which he is provided by the police authority or sub-let any part of the house or quarters
(2) A member of a police force shall not, unless he has previously given written notice to the chief officer, receive a lodger in a house in which he receives an allowance under Schedule 3, or sub-let any part of such a house.
