    Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code 1889

    by Neil R A Bell and Adam Wood


    Howard Vincent's Police Code, 1889 is a republishing of the famous guide for Metropolitan Police of the Victorian era, with an extensive introduction by Neil Bell and Adam Wood.

    The Police Code was written by Howard Vincent, Director of the CID, and first published in 1881. It was an invaluable resource to Metropolitan Police officers and was updated regularly over the next 50 years. The version being reprinted is for 1889, written in 1888 and in use by officers at the time of the Whitechapel murders.

    Over 200 pages, Howard Vincent carefully described in simple terms the legality of more than 900 incidents which might occur in the daily life of a police officer, from baby farming and wandering lunatics to illegal burials and the identification of prisoners.


    Originally, a share of proceeds from sales were donated to the Metropolitan and City Police Orphanage, and we are proud to announce that we will continue this tradition by donating an equal share of profits to the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund - every copy sold therefore contributes to the Orphans Fund.

      Hi Dusty,

      You can send a PayPal payment direct to the publishers and we'll send out the book - Neil and myself will even sign it for you.

      I'll find out the postage and email an invoice to you, if you're happy to go that route?

      All the best
      Adam

          Pleased and honoured to announce that Adam Wood and myself have been booked to speak on Sir Howard Vincent, the Police Code and the Orphans Fund at the Metropolitan Police History Society meeting of 13th April 2016 at New Scotland Yard.

          This will be the last Society talk at New Scotland Yard before the Met's move to their new premises.
