Question looking for a book on Dundee Police

I was wondering if anyone could direct me in finding a copy of the book:
City of Dundee Police 150th Anniversary: 1824-1974
I have checked with Amazon.uk but they are sold out.
My grandfather Will Brow was a Dundee policeman and I would very much like to find any books on the Dundee City Police to share with his daughther,my Mum.
if anyone knows of any bookstores that may carry such titles please let me know and I will try to send for them. or anyone has any they would like to sell please let me know
Thank you
Tricia Cook-Bosnell
59 Charles st
Port Hope Ontario
Canada L1A 1S6

It appears to have been published by the Scottish Police Federation

Try them.

Thank You! I have contacted them and they have forwarded my request to another source so I may have a chance of getting a copy.

Book on dundee police.

Having recently discovered this interesting website, I was pleasantly surprised to see the thread on the above subject!

Have you PATRICIACB been able to obtain the hard copy you referred to in your message of 24th May 2009?

I also am anxious to obtain the same book.

My Grandfather Charles Davie born1857 was a member of the Dundee Police.

Would any Forum Member know of an email address at Dundee Police where one could make contact, to see if there is still records in their archives about members of the Force during the period of my grandfathers employ?

Patricia CB posts infrequently on here, usually when she is seeking info. Try sending her a PM and she may be able to tell you who she contacted - or use the link that Scotgait suggested, earlier in this thread.

Good luck with your research.
