The History Society is in the process of gathering material for another pictorial history of the Hampshire Constabulary.   The last one sold out and is out of print.   It is intended to have a themed approach this time, concentrating on different aspects of the organisation.   Paul Stickler is dealing with CID aspects and is seeking suitable stories which would capture the reader’s attention, whether they be recent or old cases.

The History Society is also about to embark on photographing every police station and building within Hampshire and the IOW, whether in current use or not, and is seeking information about such buildings, particularly those which have long since ceased to be used for police purposes.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Paul Stickler on
