The Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall is a registered charity that collects, preserves and celebrates the history of policing in Devon and Cornwall. We encourage people — through exhibitions, pop-ups, workshops and online activities — to change the way they think about and experience policing heritage.
The Museum holds a kaleidoscope of historical policing material including documents, photographs, and artefacts, and provides an in-depth array of material tracing the social history of the region spanning over two centuries.
Through Member Mojo, you can register and pay to become a Member of the Museum (currently £24.00 per year). Previous Friends of the Museum members will have their membership frozen at £8.00 for the next two years, and there are a number of discounted membership options for NARPO members, those who currently work for the Devon and Cornwall police, as well as students and young people.
Once you are registered as a Member, you can access your Member account on Member Mojo. Occassionally, the Museum will send out information relevant to your membership, upcoming events, or Member-exclusive content. All Member information is stored according to UK Data Regulations, and you are able to unsubscribe from any correspondence at any time.
As a member of the Museum, you can enjoy exclusive monthly newsletters, free or discounted access to online and in-person talks by leading heritage professionals and experts covering a range of subjects from archive management to unsolved crimes.
