A museum charting the history of policing service in Northern Ireland has been given additional funding to mark the role of RUC Part-Time Reserve.

The police museum had already been allocated £5.59 million from the Treasury, for its new site close to the Police Memorial Garden in Belfast as a replacement of the current one-room museum at Knock police station.

It will tell the story of policing across the island of Ireland, from the foundation of formal uniformed policing in 1814 to the present day. Hundreds of artefacts are currently kept in storage.
