Amongst the collection are fantastic early images of undercover policemen and forensic work including fingerprinting and crime scene photography.

The Archive also includes images of historic police vehicles, uniforms, badges, posters and specific picture sets of police involvement in such incidents as the Brixton riots and the Poll Tax demonstrations.
