The Museum of Policing set to open its doors to the public for the final time this year
Main article content
The Police Museum is inviting members of the public to explore the heritage of policing in the county for the final time this year on Saturday 16 September.
The Museum, which can be found on Arpley Street, Warrington, is home to a large collection of policing artefacts; including handcuffs and shackles, murder weapons and police equipment that has been persevered from local police stations across the Constabulary.
Along with this, visitors will also have get to experience what life was like behind bars in days gone, locked up in the ever-popular Victorian prison cell, as well as having the opportunity to meet local officers from the force to find out about how policing in Warrington and our wider Cheshire community has changed over the force's 160 year plus history.
Cheshire's Police Dog Unit will also visit the museum for photo and meet and greet opportunities, along with chance to look at some of the other methods the force uses to tackle crime with visits from the Drone Unit and armed response vehicles. All of this sound-tracked by the Constabulary's own police band.
The museum, which will open between 10:00am and 4:00pm this Saturday, is an independent charity run by volunteers in co-operation with Cheshire Constabulary to allow members of the public the chance to explore the history of policing within the region.
