First black police officer

Britain's First Black Police Officer talk & Lock-up tour

This lock-up evening tour includes a one hour talk by retired Cumbrian officer Ray Greenhow on the life and service of John Kent - Britain's first black police officer. John Kent's service with Cumberland Police from 1835 - 1846 pre-dates the 1960s when it was thought that black and Asian police officers were first recruited in the UK. Ray has written a fascinating book on the life on John Kent which will also be for sale at the event.
