City of London Police Museum

The City of London Police Museum focuses on the history of the police force for the City of London, the financial center of the UK. It is ‘One Square Mile,’ but it has its police force, separate from the Metropolitan Police. Exhibits include uniforms, Victorian-era police equipment, and artifacts, communication devices, World War II displays, and presentations about Jack the Ripper and other famous murder cases.

The City of London Police Museum is dedicated to the police force and its story of policing. The City of London Police has been responsible for policing the Square Mile since 1839, and the force’s priorities are to keep the City safe. It is also the UK’s leading police force for fraud, cybercrime, and economic crime. The museum provides a fascinating insight into the deeds of criminals and villains.
