Totally independent from the Met, the City of London Police has a proud tradition of protecting the Square Mile from crime and terrorism.
For many years they have had a museum at Wood Street Police Station, a treasure trove crammed with amazing objects from the crime-fighting past. But its opening hours have always been sporadic owing to the operational demands on the volunteers - serving officers - two of whom happen to be members of London Historians, we're proud to report.
But now the museum will have a new home - a "proper" home, with regular opening hours. It will be in the Guildhall complex in the room where the Clockmakers' collection used to be before moving to the Science Museum.
Our Event will be a private view of the new museum with short introductory talks by Amy Burgess of the Guildhall Library and one of the curators. There will be wine!
