Statement of purpose

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 objectives of this society are:

  • To collect material that relates to the history of the organization including books, photographs, documents and artefacts
  • To develop interest in items of equipment, records, uniform and accoutrements
  • To publish books covering a range of topics
  • To research archive material and publish the findings
  • To make as much material as possible available to the public and to assist enquirers with their
    own research
