Our archive collections amount to a small artificial collection predominantly of archival material arranged by case (mainly murders!) - one a particular gruesome family murder from 1871, and another from 1816 and 1839 with theĀ 
complete witness statements.

Apart from that, we have a very small number of photographs, and a handful of museum objects, including a Victorian truncheon and two police helmets.
