Manchester Police Museum

Another day out for Trust Members this time took them to the Police Museum in Manchester.
Meeting at Piccadilly, 16 made their way to Newton Street where the old Police Station is now the biggest Police Museum in the country.

Tours have to be booked in advance and a maximum of 20 people at a time are shown around.
It was well worth the effort, fascinating facts and figures were on display as well as human stories, gruesome exhibits, weapons used in crimes and other artifacts showing the history of policing in the Greater Manchester area.

Altogether a great day out, the high light being the re-constructed Denton Magistrates court where we put Ann and Eric in the dock and Kevin sat on the bench. With Paula as a witness and the remainder of the party prosecuting the defendants didn't stand a chance.
