The open day will allow local people to see how policing has evolved over the years. There will be plenty of children’s activities too. Budding detectives will be able to solve clues around the museum, have their fingerprints taken and dress up in historic and present day uniforms.

 

It also gives the public the opportunity to meet local officers and pick up crime prevention advice.

The Museum of Policing is run by a team of volunteers, who dedicate their free time for members of the public who would like to gain an insight to the history of policing.

The Museum is free to the public and educational groups by appointment, and contains some of the oldest police artefacts in the United Kingdom.
