Join the National Police Library

Information on how to join our library.


Membership to the library is restricted to all serving UK police officers and staff.


You can search and access some of our e-collections.

  • We index many free and open access materials and have collected together policing literature either difficult to otherwise find or not available elsewhere. You can freely search both the catalogue and Police Library Search.
  • You may visit our library in Ryton for reference-only access to unrestricted print resources at the librarian's discretion. A small fee is charged for a day pass and security clearance.
