INTERNATIONAL POLICE COLLECTION
My name is Alastair Dinsmor and I am a retired Inspector of Strathclyde Police, Scotland, UK. I served in the Police here in the Glasgow area from 1965 until June 1998, when I retired.
My International Police Collection was founded in 1966 and has grown into one of Europe's largest private collections of police insignia, uniforms and headgear. I have over 6400 items from EVERY country in the World.
In 2016 I completed 50 years collecting and was awarded an M.B.E. by Queen Elizabeth II for services to Police Heritage.
MY COLLECTION IS ON DISPLAY AT THE GLASGOW POLICE MUSEUM, 30 BELL STREET, GLASGOW, SCOTLAND.
