SWPHT plain smallWe are in the beginning stages of initiating the South West Police Heritage Trust, a new charity that will own, operate, develop and maintain the force’s historic collection. If you would like to find out more or get involved, then please click here.

Policing Past Community Present is a Heritage Lottery Fund-supported project that launched in August 2014.  The overarching aim of this project is to provide the spring-board to enable the opening of the stored Historic Collections of Devon & Cornwall Police by creating a new charity dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the collection; the South West Police Heritage Trust. This charity will tasked with taking over the governance of the unique collection and making the vision of an accessible police heritage hub a reality.
