Free admission for all – booking is essential
The South Wales Police Heritage Centre, based at Police Headquarters in Bridgend, will re-open its doors to members of the public from Wednesday 4th April.
The Heritage Centre, or Museum as it was previously known, previously proved to be a real favourite with visitors of all ages, but sadly had to close while the development work on the Headquarters site was ongoing.
Deputy Chief Constable Richard Lewis said:
What can I expect from my visit?
Our galleries contain a range of artefacts, including police equipment and uniforms from years gone by, together with items like handcuffs, radios and 19th Century decorated truncheons.
You can discover the tough duties of police officers in World War I, and see some of the weapons recovered by police officers during their daily duties.
There is also a Charge Room to book people into custody, as well as a cell for any of our law-breaking guests!
