Over the last two weeks, Project Assistant Carmen has been visiting various police collections across the country to gain insight into how these museums/exhibitions are run, and what we can learn in planning for the future of the Historic Collections of Devon & Cornwall Police. Here are a few images from the places she visited. Thanks to the Curators of Essex Police Museum and Greater Manchester Police Museum for meeting with Carmen and giving their invaluable advice.
