'Tracing Your Police Ancestors' will help you locate and research officers who served in any of the police forces of England and Wales from the creation of
the Metropolitan Police by Sir Robert Peel in 1829. Assuming that the researcher has no prior knowledge of how or where to look for such information, Stephen Wade explains and describes the various archives and records and provides a discussion of other sources. 

Case studies are used to show how an individual officer's career may be traced and understood from this research. He also explains the range of
secondary sources open to the family or local historian, many of which offer a broader account of the social and cultural history of the British Police
Forces.
