Unique story of the police in and around Tonbridge, from the very earliest days of beadles and bailiffs to the professionalisation of the police through two world wars.

Local historian Pam Mills catalogues the crimes and the men and women who prevented, detected and prosecuted them - along with the numerous times the constables put themselves in harms way to keep the peace.

The story of policing in one town in Kent reflects the social history of much of Britain - and keeping the peace - through the ages.

£5 from the sale of each book goes to police charities.
