Policing Petersfield – a history

Police check out the ‘new’ speed monitoring system

A new book by Petersfield Museum, Policing Petersfield: 1840–2016, was launched last week.

It chronicles the story of police in Petersfield from the early days as one of the original 12 divisions of the newly created Hampshire Constabulary in 1840 to the closure of the town’s police station in September 2016.

Written by historian Diana Syms and including more than 140 photographs, the book shares previously unknown stories of policing in Petersfield.

Diana dropped into the P pod to discuss the book with presenter Claire Vennis.
