Several years ago the old Cottesloe Police Station was being renovated. The builders took the cast alloy sign off the wall and threw it into the skip bin with all the other rubbish. Luckily the Officer in Charge at the time saw this take place, retrieved the sign and took it for safe keeping. He recently paid a visit to Policeman’s Way and became aware of the valuable items held in the collection so he donated the sign to add to the collection.
It is a great piece of history and has now been attached to the wall of the display. Another great addition to Policeman’s Way.
