Victorian Era City Of London Police Constable's Hand Painted Wood Presentation Truncheon To Constable ‘419’. Sn 16405 - 16405
Prior to 1839, the responsibility for policing in the City of London was divided, from the medieval period, between day and night City Watch, primarily under the two sheriffs. Responsibilities were shared with the aldermen's officers – the ward beadles – who are now purely ceremonial. It was these officers' responsibility for ensuring the Night Watch was maintained. Policing during the day eventually came under the City Patrol, which evolved into the City Day Police, which was modelled on the Metropolitan Police. In 1838, the Day Police and Night Watch were merged into a single organisation. The passing of the City of London Police Act 1839 gave statutory approval to the force as an independent police body, heading off attempts made to merge it with the Metropolitan Police. This is an original hand painted wood City of London Police presentation truncheon to Constable ‘419’.
