The Derby Police Museum is full of history and you can find out so much about the police and forces throughout history. I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is based inside of the Derby Gaol to add to the atmosphere!

Situated within Derby Gaol this is an interesting and informative display of Derby policing through the ages. You would not fancy a whack from some of the Truncheons on display here!
