About the Museum
Thames Valley Police has a small museum at the White House, Sulhamstead (near Reading, Berks), formerly headquarters of the Berkshire Constabulary and now Thames Valley Police's training centre.
The museum includes displays on the history of Thames Valley Police and the five police forces that merged to form it: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxford City, Oxfordshire and Reading Borough.
The museum's collections include items from the Great Train Robbery of 1963, uniforms, equipment, medals, photographs, scenes of crime evidence, and occurrence and charge books.
A booklet on the history of Thames Valley Police and its predecessor forces is now available. It contains information and photographs taken from the archives of the Force Museum at Sulhamstead.
The booklet costs £1.50. For more information please email the Museum curator or call 01865 846578.
