Bob Pooler wants your help

 Dudley Police

"My name is Bob Pooler and I served in West Mercia Constabulary for more than thirty years. For more than 30 years I have been researching the history of Police Forces that were part of the County of Worcester until 1967. This includes the Borough of Dudley up until 1966.

Apart from gathering historical facts about Dudley, I am keen to collect photographs, documents, memorabilia in order to preserve them for the future. I am aware that not everyone wishes to give up their precious possessions and so I would welcome the opportunity to photograph them or copy them. I would undertake to collect them and return them safely.

I have been fortunate to meet a number of former Dudley officers who have been kind enough to provide their recollections, photographs etc., for which I am very grateful.

I can be contacted at:

I have provided Steve Perrins with my home telephone number should you wish to call me. I do hope you can help."                  Bob Pooler
