Police Insignia Collectors Association of Great Britain was founded
in 1974 and the original idea was to try to gather all genuine collectors
of police insignia and to create a central register in order to contact
one another for trading etc, and to encourage the preservation of
the history of the police service through out the world.
time, we have grown from that original idea into an organised association
whose members are interested, not only in badges, but also in the
history of the police forces from whence they came. All officers
and committee members are unpaid and devote much of their free time
for the benefit of the Association. In order to minimise costs an
SAE is appreciated when writing to committee members about PICA
