Dr Tim Brain's research

For those interested in police history, something to look out for in a month or two is an article on Gloucestershire Constabulary by former Chief Constable, Dr Tim Brain

Gloucestershire Archives - D8746-1

Those of us hearing his talk in the Dunrossil Centre during the 2019 History Festival will be delighted to see that a fully researched and footnoted article is shortly to be published by the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society in their Transactions: ‘“For the Preservation of the Peace”: The foundation and early years of the Gloucestershire Constabulary’.   

The article examines which county police force can claim to be the oldest in the UK.  Does Wiltshire retain the title, is Gloucestershire in with a shout, or is there another contender?
