The History of Policing the Railway – 
Kevin Gordon

 

Our speaker, Kevin Gordonvisited us before to speak about the Houses of Parliament. He spent 34 years as a British Transport Police Officer and was a founder member of the Force History Society.  Kevin will explain that the railway police were one of the earliest organised police forces in the country. Indeed, there were railway policemen before there were railways!  The Railway Police were the first policeforce in the UK to employ women and the first to use police dogs.  Kevin will end the talk giving an overview of his time in the force including some interesting arrests!

If you think friends might be interested in this talk, they are welcome to attend. They will be asked to sign in so that we have a record of attendance.
