The City of London Police Museum takes visitors on a unique journey, which includes the last hours of Catherine Eddowes, one of Jack the Ripper’s victims; bomb damage during the Blitz; being at the forefront of technology to counter terrorism and the current work against economic crime and cybercrime.
The City of London Police has been responsible for policing the Square Mile since 1839. Over the course of more than 180 years, the force’s priorities have remained the same: keep the City safe. It is also the UK’s leading police force for fraud and economic crime.
The purpose-built museum is a collaboration between the City of London Police and the City of London Corporation, and is situated next to Guildhall Library. The museum was opened in November 2016.
The museum also offers school workshops, talks and events, and interactive family sessions.
