The Glasgow Police Museum

The museum contains thousands of artefacts and two main exhibitions. The International Police Exhibition displays a unique collection of over 2,000 items of insignia, headgear and uniforms from every country in the world. The Glasgow Police Historical Exhibition includes artefacts and text boards, which give you an insight into the people and events that contributed to the founding of Britain’s first Police Force, the City of Glasgow Police from 1779-1975.

The museum is a private museum and is manned by volunteer members of The Glasgow Police Heritage Society.
