Police Day at Gunwharf Quays

Saturday 5th October was the Policing Through the Ages day at Portsmouth's Gunwharf Quays. I called in on my way from Central Library to the HIstoric Dockyard.


I was greeted by a US police car, sponsored by Cops and Doughnuts, who had flown over from Clare, Michigan to hand out sample bags of two of their coffee blends:
Police Day 051013 (1)


Next to it was a compatriot, being shown off by USA Cop Cars Ltd
Police Day 051013 (2) Police Day 051013 (4)


The British Military Police had brought a bunch of vehicles:
Police Day 051013 (7)


There were a few examples of two-wheeled transport:
Police Day 051013 (13) Police Day 051013 (14) Police Day 051013 (15)


And a replica WWII Police Station from The Law at War:
Police Day 051013 (16)


But mostly the day was all about the cars:
Police Day 051013 (8) Police Day 051013 (17)

Police Day 051013 (19) Police Day 051013 (20)

Police Day 051013 (21)


Plus a police tractor:
Police Day 051013 (26)


And a star of the small and large screens:
Police Day 051013 (28)


Police boats were also in evidence but even trickier to photograph. Maybe next year...
