Liverpool City Police was formed in 1836. Over the following one hundred and seventy five years and four name changes, Liverpool Constabulary, Liverpool City Police (1880), Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary (1967) and Merseyside Police (1974) the force has gone from strength to strength, being now universally recognised as one of the most efficient, groundbreaking and pioneering Police forces in the United Kingdom, if not the world. This has not happened by accident as the reputation and distinction of the current force is a consequence of the professionalism and dedication of officers from the past and the present. It’s a great Police force, it always was!

"liverpoolcitypolice.co.uk is a web resource and virtual museum dedicated to the proud men and women of yesteryear who served the public of Liverpool. It is administered by retired Police Officers devoted to capturing the past and who want to show it as a world resource. Some may find it useful for research and others may want to contribute with photographs and stories of their relatives who once were Liverpool Police Officers.
Many of those featured are friends and ex colleagues that I have known and worked alongside over the last nigh on 40 years and I take great pleasure in endorsing such a worthwhile project. I hope you enjoy the site and keep visiting for many years to come."
