Police Code announcement

Since there don't seem to be more errors turning up I'm posting links to the Police Code on various communities, to usenet, etc. - I can always make corrections if necessary. If you'd like to link to it or mention it elsewhere, please go ahead - I won't be changing the address. Here's the announcement:

Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code (1912)

I've put the complete text of Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code on my web site. It's the 15th (1912) edition of a compact guide to law, conduct, etc. for London policeman, by the man who founded Scotland Yard's CID (Criminal Investigation Department). It was used as a reference by all of the UK's police forces, and adapted to many Commonwealth forces. It should be useful to anyone researching or writing about the UK police in this period, and much of it undoubtedly applies to British police forces from the Victorian era well into the 1920s-30s. To make it easier to use I've adapted the index which now has several THOUSAND links to entries, and put several hundred links into the text.

I've had a lot of help correcting this, but undoubtedly some OCR and formatting errors etc. remain, if you spot anything that looks wrong please let me know.
