The Met Museums care for the collections and history of the Met. In addition we promote wider knowledge of the story of the Met especially marking important anniversaries with our colleagues both in the MPS and the wider police community.
We are here to help colleagues and stakeholders preserve, engage and interpret the history of the Met.
You can contact us to discuss various topics, such as:
donating something to our collection
borrowing an item from us
help with research enquiries
Donate an object
We are always looking to add to the collection so we can tell the full story of the Metropolitan Police and the crimes they have investigated. We collect uniform, photographs, documents, equipment, books and many more items. If you have something that you would like to donate please contact us.
We only collect items relating to the Metropolitan Police not other police forces. If your items relate to other police forces please contact them directly.
To enquire about borrowing objects from the Met Museum collection or for more information on our loan procedure please contact the Head of Museums via our contact form. Please note we require a minimum of six months notice for loan requests.
The MPS Museum team can help with research enquiries regarding the history of the Metropolitan Police, objects in the collection, use of images in conjunction with MPS Commercial Department, famous cases and officers.
