The exhibition highlights some developments in the policing of Ashby, from the parish constable to the neighbourhood policing of today. It aims to entertain - pictures of moustachioed policeman of old, inform the famous Ferrers' murder and some lesser known events such as the 1865 election riot. It starts in an age where the maintenance of law and order was very much down to the local community and ends with the development of community/policing partnerships. We are trying to do something that isn't about the dim and dusty past, but which is a continuing issue of concern and to involve people who are active in policing Ashby now. Much of the material displayed is from the Museum's archive but we have also been given access to Leicestershire Police's archive and some of their artefacts and images are on display, for which we are very grateful.
