IMPORTANT information

Approximately half of the entries in this series do not relate to individuals but to the various Police Districts in the region.

It was felt that these entries would be valuable for anyone researching a particular region but would not be beneficial if included in the A-Z files of the Potpourri Database.  Consequently a separate file of subject based entries has been provided.

If an entry relates to a person or organisation, it appears in the A-Z files

If an entry does NOT relate to a person or organisation, it appears in the Police District file.
