British police history: the increasing interest

Recently there has been increasing interest in the history of the British police. This is shown by the number of organisations that have sprung up, for example there are now 27 Police History Museums, including the City of London, Glasgow; Coventry, and Greater Manchester; 14 Police collections and 39 Police-related historical societies in the UK and Ireland. The Police History Society has around 300 members, including international members http://www.policehistorysociety.co.uk/ 

All this activity leads to increasing public interest in policing and police work and how things used to be.
