City of London Police Museum

About the City of London Police Museum

A small, but interesting museum that charts the history of the City of London's own police force.

It shows off the history of how the police force was set up, a number of significant events in its lifetime and how policing is done today.

Expect lots of information boards, some cases of artifacts, and a long room of uniforms from the ages.
