Welcome to the Crime & Punishment Collections Network

The Crime and Punishment Collections Network (CaP) is a free Arts Council England Subject Specialist Network. Through dissemination of information, our online collections directory and training sessions, CaP aims to promote and support historic collections relating, for example, to prisons, police, courts or coroners. The network is of relevance to anyone working with crime and punishment collections – whether for universities, archives, libraries, heritage centres, museums or historic sites. CaP covers the UK, Ireland and beyond.
