Discover more than 200 years of policing heritage

The Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall collects, preserves and celebrates the history of policing in Devon and Cornwall. We encourage people — through exhibitions, pop-ups, workshops and online activities — to change the way they think about and experience policing heritage.

The Museum holds a kaleidoscope of historical policing material including documents, photographs, and artefacts, and provides an in-depth array of material tracing the social history of the region spanning over two centuries.

We exist to ensure the policing heritage is made accessible and preserved for posterity.
