Little has been written about police firearms and weaponry over the years.
Archival records are sparse and the history of the subject complex.
Fortunately, author, Dominique Noel, navigates the subject with ease taking us through the history of police weaponry using a wealth of photographs and previously unpublished documents.
In this comprehensive work we see the history of the police firearm from the early days of St.
Louis and the use of the halberd to the peacekeeper of the 21st Century. In this book you will witness the evolution of the police institution through the centuries and discover the difficulties encountered since the Revolution as the police has changed from a practical armed force to a strategic unit with an arsenal of equipment.
