The Friends group was formed in May 2011 in order to support the fine historic collections of Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and the work of the Curator. Our small charity is a not for profit organisation recognised as charitable by HMRC for tax purposes. We are also members of the British Association of Friends of Museums.
The aim of The Friends of The South West Police Heritage Trust is to fully support the Heritage and Learning Resource by undertaking the following:
- Make known to the broader community the diversity and wealth of the collection by giving talks, attending community events and providing a web site.
- To assist in the promotion of knowledge regarding history, community and policing to the communities of Devon and Cornwall for all ages.
- To fundraise and assist in the ongoing care and conservation of the collection.
You can get involved in supporting the Collection by joining the Friends for the small annual fee of £5, becoming a volunteer or donating to our work directly here.
