History of The South Australian Police Historical Society, the Police Museum, the Thebarton Barracks, and their re-location

Presented by Bill Prior

Bill Prior, President of the SA Police Historical Society, will present on the history of the South Australia Police and the role of the South Australian Police Historical Society. The talk will be quite topical as he will cover the planning and development of a new Museum which is now required because of the demolition of the Thebarton Barracks to facilitate construction of the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Bill joined the SA Police as a cadet in 1965 and retired in 2011 at the rank of Detective Chief Inspector.

He was appointed to the Executive Committee of the SA Police Historical Society in 2002 and served an initial term as President from 2010 to 2018 and again from 2020 through to the current time.
