History of the Metropolitan Police

Historical Archives

The Metropolitan Police archives date back to 1875 and contain a wide and varied collection relating to the policing of the Metropolitan Police District of London. The collection relates not only to interesting exhibits from crime cases (specifically dealt with by the Crime Museum at New Scotland Yard) but a whole range of interesting items and images reflecting the life of London as seen through the eyes of the Police Service dealing with social change in the city streets and ordinary lives of people at times of crisis.
