Overview

Our collection spans the history of Kent Police from 1857 to the present day, including the Borough forces and crimes committed in the County.  Like most museums, we work hard to document and catalogue our growing collection in line with UK museum professional standards.

An estimate of our current holdings includes:
  • 10,000 photographs (including negatives)
  • 3,000 artefacts (including uniforms/guns/evidence)
  • 5,000 documents (including newspaper articles)
  • 1,500 books/journals
  • 3,000 films
  • 2 Motorbikes
Our priority is to make sure material is properly cared for and documented in a way that we can easily retrieve detailed information.  As we get more of the collection recorded digitally, our long term plan is to allow online research access to non-sensitive parts of our records.

Keep an eye on our homepage where we have a different 'object of the month' each month, giving you detail about one artefact and its relevance to the Kent Police story.
