Police Firearms and Restraints

A brand new topic for our History In Your Hands seminars with an opportunity to get up close to real objects illustrating the development of police equipment in the UK over the last 200 years.

We will be examining how the police have restrained criminals – from truncheons to cutlasses and from handcuffs to batons, and taking a look at firearms including early flintlock pistols and revolvers right through to exploring modern-day body armour used to protect our forces today.

  • All of the seminars run from 10:30 to 4:30 and take place at the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds.
  • Lunch is not provided, but there is a bistro and a café plus a picnic area in the Museum.
  • Booking is essential as the seminars tend to sell out quickly and places are limited to 20 delegates per seminar.


£30.00 per delegate
