The Essex Police Force : A History Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This remarkable new book recalls the history of the Essex Police Force from its inception in 1840 through to the present day.

Essex was one of the first counties in Britain to form a professional police force, and over the next 170 years it has witnessed many changes.

Illustrated with over 260 photographs, documents and euphemera, the majority of which have never been published, The Essex Police Force: A History features images of policeman and women at work and at leisure, together with changing modes of transport and scene of crime photographs, which offer a unique insight into the force's history.

This intriguing volume provides a glimpse into some of the events and people that have shaped the force we know today, and will appeal to everyone with an interest in the county's penal history.
