The Garda Síochána Historical Society are presently campaigning to digitize old police photographs, artefacts & documents before the identities/stories associated with the items are forgotten.
A special Police Memorabilia Event was organised at The Bedford Tower, Dublin Castle, between 10 am and 6 pm on Saturday, 16 November 2013, and we want to thank all who brought along their old DMP, RIC or Garda items so that they would be photographed/scanned.
A series of FREE lectures was also provided on the day.

- 2 pm - The Theft of the Irish Crown Jewels by Dr. Myles Dungan
- 4pm - Spying on Ireland - The Intelligence War during WWII by Prof. Eunan O'Halpin
