Description

A free talk by Mike Rowlands

A Fair Cop! covers policing in the past.A time when PC didn't stand for politically correct
With their collars and ties, starched blue shirts and short back and sides haircuts, they seem light years away from the image of the modern-day police officer.

When officers kept their Brylcreemed composure in their old headquarters on London’s Embankment, before moving a few hundred yards down the road to Broadway. Ringing the telephone number Whitehall 1212 would never be the same again.

A world where Dixon Of Dock Green had just collided with Z Cars - still a far cry from the modern scenario of jeans-clad detectives who plot their evidence with computer projections and wait for the latest DNA techniques to give them a lead.

Come and joins us- light refreshments available. Bring your own tipple and nibbles if you wish. Parking at the rear of the building accessable formt he road at the side of the building. Please register to help our event organisation.
