Hardback. Taken from the 'Introduction' : '...Some of these police forces already have their own local police magazines and there are various journals published which deal with police matters both at home and abroad; but there has not hitherto been any 'Service' journal in which the views of the professional police officer and the scientific authority on criminal matters can be made available at once to police officers throughout the Empire. It was decided therefore to forge this link by the founding of a quarterly journal devoted to the work, organization, history and development, scientific, legal and sociological, of the police forces of the British Empire.....' This is the first quarterly publication with Contents as diverse as : The Camorra; Cattle Stealing in Burma; The Compleat Highwayman; Danish Police Forces; Development of the Police in Cyprus; Dust and its Analysis: an Aid to Criminal Investigation; Evidence; The First Twenty Years of the Court of Criminal Appeal; French Police: Its Evolution from its Source to the Present Day; The Identification of Firearms and Projectiles; The Iraq Police; Jack Sheppard: Legendary and Real; Lancashire Constabulary: Eighty Years Ago and Today; The Palestine Police Force under the Mandate; The Police Dog : His Selection and Training; Police Administration, Local and National; Royal Canadian Mounted Police; The Salvation Army and the Indian Criminal; Scottish Criminal Procedure; Some Results of Recent Medico-Legal Research; Toxicology and Crime; The Value of Psychology in Court Work + much more.
