A Pictorial History of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary
COMING SOON (Delivery expected beginning of December)
This new book includes 242 photographs, over 40 in full colour. They provide an insight into how policing has developed over the last 180 years. You will be able to see changes in uniform, equipment as well as vehicles and buildings. Each photograph includes a brief description and details of whom or what is depicted. The book helps to preserve the memory of the thousands of individuals who have served as officers and staff in the various forces that have existed in the two counties, including former Borough ad City forces that have long since been amalgamated into the larger force. Also included are comprehensive biographies of the fifteen Chief Constables of Hampshire Constabulary, from 1839 to the present day.
