The Old Nick Police museum is a group of volunteers, some ex police officers, seeking to promote and preserve the history of the Lincolnshire Police. It is an independent community group that works alongside Lincolnshire Police to preserve and catalogue its collection as well as to promote and educate through tourism and to encourage school parties to visit as part of the national curriculum.
