MoU signed for planned police museum

The Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, the Mumbai Police Foundation and Tata Trusts signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a project to conserve and archive historic records of the police force and to plan a police museum, the first such in Maharashtra.

Police officers said the museum would be modelled on similar efforts by law enforcement agencies abroad, which showcase the history of the agencies and contribute to their citizen outreach initiatives.

“Tata Trusts is proud to partner with the Mumbai Police on this project, as an important step in preserving the city’s history and heritage,” Tata Trusts said in a statement on Thursday.

The Hindu had on April 26, 2017, reported the plan for a museum in the ground floor of the renovated old commissionerate building near Crawford Market. The museum would house pictures and figurines of policemen from the time of the British Raj, important documents, and items that mark momentous occasions in the history of the police force, the Commissioner of Police had said at the time.
