A Guide to the Archives of the Police

Forces of England and Wales

This is a facsimile of the original version of the 'Guide to the Archives', put online in the summer of 2006. We have removed a few names and contact details where they are obviously out of date and the people involved have pointed this out to us. Nevertheless it is likely that most of the contact details listed inside (certainly all the telephone numbers and probably all the names) will now be out of date. We know that more records have come to light in the intervening years and that, sadly, some of those listed here are no longer to be found. For up to date contact details for UK archives, search the ARCHON database [http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/archon/] and for contact details for UK police forces, see the police portal [http://www.police.uk/].

The 'Guide' remains copyright to the Police History Society.
