Women in Policing exhibition
19/05/2022 - 1:00 pm - 02/10/2022 - 4:00 pm
We are launching a brand-new exhibition at the Prison & Police Museum which will aim to explore the role of some of the first female police officers to join the force.
The exhibition aims to explore how attitudes towards women in policing have changed over time. Has society moved from segregation of women in policing to full integration or are there still issues to address in modern policing?
The exhibition has been curated by volunteers alongside our Community Curator Dr Laura Allan using oral histories, film, photographs and archive materials.
The exhibition will be open from 28 April until 2 October between 1pm and 4pm, with extended opening during school holidays. Museum tickets are valid for 12 months with unlimited return visits.
