The City of London Police has been responsible for policing the Square Mile since 1839. Over the course of more than 175 years, the force’s priorities have remained the same: keep the City safe. It is also the UK’s leading police force for fraud and economic crime.
The purpose-built museum is a collaboration between the City of London Police and the City of London Corporation’s Guildhall Library, which is situated next to the new museum at Guildhall, the City’s historic headquarters. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awarded a grant of c.£90,000 towards the development of the museum and associated community engagement. Admission to the museum is free and over 2016 and 2017 there will be a variety of special events, talks and walks, as well as a range of merchandise available.

City of London Police Museum Reviews
It was a surprise to find this museum accessed via the back entrance to the Guildhall let alone open on a Saturday (the neighbouring Guildhall Museum was shut). It’s a small but compact space telling.... more »
Very interesting museum in the Guildhall complex. Listening devices (only in English). Good for kids too. Allow about an hour. more »
Cool little museum that you shouldn't miss. Like all London museums, it's free. It's inside an admin building. There's no check-in or anything like that. Just a converted large room. There are cool pieces of London history and it talks about events that defined how they operate. Cool place and will definitely recommend it. It takes around 30 minutes to go through everything.
Very interesting museum , not very large but full of fascinating artifact's. The story of the London city police is told through the exhibits, we spent about an hour and quarter there.
