Scope and content

Sub-series consists of police charge books which were used to record inmates brought to the jail by police. Books record the individual's name, their crime or the reason they were brought to the jail, and the time and date. The charge book dating from 1963-1964 contains a list of officers with examples of their signatures. Researchers should note that the first book in the sub-series contains entries made at the front of the book, as usual, in addition to entries made from the back of the book with it upside down.
