26 February - Police Museum
A group visit to the Police Museum was informative, interesting and friendly.   Our Guide mentioned that the police are mainly to prevent crime, maintain order and to take offenders before a court. In the war years their job also included fire and ambulance duties.
Charles II initiated the Watchmen Scheme from this has come the police force we know today.  The police (dress) uniform was based on the fashion of the day i.e. tailed coat and top hat.  Today the uniform has a utility belt on which are special handcuffs and truncheon and the use of body armour when required.  The tour ended and we were let out to proceed to the nearby restaurant for a very nice two course meal.
Thank you Pat Gorie for organising this visit.
