Police open museum at Prospect headquarters
A historic trove of Bermuda Police Service artefacts is getting its own museum at the Police Headquarters in Prospect, Devonshire.
The BPS museum got a “soft opening” last Wednesday night with a tribute to Edward “Bosun” Swainson, the first black police officer to be promoted to Inspector.[See Lifestyle]
Roger Sherratt, a former chief inspector who runs the Bermuda Ex-Police Association, said that Stephen Corbishley, the Commissioner of Police, and Assistant Commissioner Martin Weekes, had been discussing creating a place of pride for the various items from the history of the service.
Mr Sherratt said that the exhibits would be gradually compiled into a gallery of police memorabilia that the public would also get to admire.
On Saturday, the penultimate day of Police Week, a gymkhana was held at Police Field.
