Unless you are a police officer from elsewhere. You can book an entry to the 'Black Museum' now called 'Crime Museum', Police identification must be produced. Even so it is difficult to gain access. As a serving police officer in 1997, I got in.
Around 5 years ago there were plans for a Metropolitan Police Museum - open to public, to be built in the Covent Garden area, it got shelved by the Metropolitan Police - a pity. Many other areas of UK do have small police museums open to the public, Edinburgh for one.
