City of London Police Museum

Report of the Commissioner.


The Board received a report of the Commissioner on the City of London Police Museum.


The Board discussed the possible future options for the City of London Police Museum. Members suggested that options to reinstate the museum at the Guildhall Yard East and Salisbury Square development be considered as well as the potential for private sponsorship. It was noted that including the City of London Police Museum at the Museum of London was not a practical long-term solution. 


The Chamberlain observed that there were significant questions to be answered regarding the long-term solution for housing the Museum including value for money with regard to visitor numbers noting that the Operational Property and Projects Sub-Committee would need to consider proposals. In addition, the Board were informed that the Salisbury Square site did not have the required space for the Museum. The Chair commented that the expenditure would be modest when compared to the visitor numbers.


RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
