Police boxes and posts were important tools for the Metropolitan Police from the late 1920s until the late 1960s. They allowed officers on the beat and the public to contact the police or make 999 calls in a time before people had access to their own telephones or mobiles.
Although the earliest police boxes in Britain were introduced in Glasgow and large, square boxes with sloping roofs were introduced into the north east by the late 1920s, it was the Metropolitan Police Service boxes, designed by the service’s surveyor Gilbert Mackenzie Trench, in 1929 that caught the public’s imagination and became universally recognisable.
