British police organization

Is there anyone here conversant with British police organization? I am a budding mystery writer who wants to set his stories in the England of the 1930s. I need all the help I can get!


  • I am sure there are many books and websites with this kind of informachan, if that can be of any use to you (I don't know myself)

    The following is a website that may be of some help to you:
  • Anthony Martienssen's non-fiction "Crime and the Police" isn't bad, and contains a section on the heirarchy of the force - but it's from the 50s rather than the 30s.  You could probably find a cheap copy as it's not difficult to come across one of the Penguin Green editions.  I've no idea how much the force changed from before WWII to afterwards.
