The Hampshire Police and Fire Heritage Trust was formed to preserve the rich history of Police and Fire Services that have served Hampshire and the Isle of Wight for over 180 years. We run one of only two joint Police and Fire Museums in the country. The museum is packed with historical items and photographs that show how the services have developed over the years. This website will give you a preview of how we can assist with historical research and how you might be able to assist us with your time or by donating items for our collection.
