THE POLICE & CONSTABULARY LIST 1844
(PHS Monograph No. 3)
Published by the Police History Society 1990.
ISBN 0 9512538 2 4
ISSN 0951-8800

This is a reprint of a chance survival of a rare item of police ephemera from the days before there was a police force as we know it. The original volume is owned by the Lancashire Constabulary, by whose kind permission it is reproduced. It was found in the strong room in the Chief Clerk’s office in the old H.Q. in Jordon Street, Preston and was rescued and re-bound by the then Chief Clerk, Mr. W.W. Thornton in 1936. The book purports to be compiled with permission, from official documents and contains a royal coat of arms. On page VI can be found a three page advertisement for the book itself. The contents include a unique collection of names and dates in police history and it is also possible to reconstruct the rank structure, size and organisation of those police forces that existed in 1844.

Obtainable from the Supplies Officer in PDF format price £3.
