This is a fascinating Victorian Bobby's Bible - unearthed quite by accident from the archives of my great grandfather - James Wood’s - a former Royal Protection Officer from personal effects, diaries and records, which had lain hidden and unseen for over 100 years. It is a rare and valued policing guide authorised by Queen Victoria. More
This is a fascinating document unearthed by accident from the archives of my great grandfather - James Wood’s - personal effects, which had lain hidden and unseen for over 100 years. He was a former soldier who left the services to become a police constable, sergeant, detective sergeant, detective inspector, chief inspector and finally the youngest ever superintendent of Manchester Police. The content of this particular document is based upon the copy found within the faded notes of Self Education for the Police, which became known as the ‘Bobby’s Bible,’ and contained all the information required for a police officer to do his duty.
