The Trust has recently launched a police heritage project funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Collections Fund. Our project partner is the Bradford Police Museum. 

The Police History project is working to develop the historic police collections at both Ripon and Bradford. Work is underway to improve collections management practices and develop access to the wealth of material reflecting over 150 years of policing and criminal justice. Future plans include a community engagement programme and updated displays at both museums. A small touring exhibition will also be developed early in 2018 which will tour venues in rural Yorkshire as well as sites across the city of Bradford. 

Updates will appear here shortly.
