Your Society Needs You!

Volunteers needed at our Museum in Southampton. We’re looking for retired officers/staff, or people with a real interest in Police History.

The Hampshire Constabulary History Society was formed in 1986.

Its aim is to foster interest in the history of the force and the old City and Borough Police Forces that once existed in the two counties.

The aims and objectives of this society are:

To develop interest in items of equipment, records and photographs, including uniform and accoutrements.
