Peelers to Pandas
An illustrated history of the Leicester City Police Force

Ben Beazley

Peelers to Pandas provides a definitive history of the Leicester Borough and City Police Force from its inception in 1836 until its amalgamation with the Leicestershire and Rutland Constabulary in 1967. Packed with over 230 photographs and illustrations, many of which have never before been published, this book gives both the casual reader and the serious researcher, a fascinating insight into Leicester during the 19th and 20th centuries.

A section of over 1,300 names and service details provides, for the first time , a searchable data base of every officer who served in the Force between 1929 and 1967.
