Watch back a live virtual tour of the Essex Police Museum. First streamed live on the Essex Police Facebook page at 5pm on Thursday September 24, 2020.
As part of Essex 2020’s celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM), Essex Police have been showcasing the abilities of their many teams who are constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to help people, keep them safe and to catch criminals.
Last month they treated us to a fantastic tour of the Essex Police Museum, showing some of the exhibits on display and talking us through some of the technology that has been used over the years in crime scene investigations. Learn about the history of the Essex Police force and the development of their crime-fighting and communications technology in this fascinating and informative video.
The Essex Police Museum is re-opening for pre-booked tours. Book via Eventbrite.
The museum tells the story of the history of the police in Essex from the Victorians to modern day.
Things you can see include the shoes of Camille Holland, murdered for her money in 1898, and the death mask of Frederick Browne, who killed PC Gutteridge in 1927.
Essex Police are recruiting police officers, special constables and detectives. Visit Essex Police careers if you want to learn new skills and become part of the team.
