CS Files Crime and Special Branch

These 25 files are in Roll 63 (63).

Most of the CS files seem to focus on investigations around police officers themselves: their conduct, suspicions of crime, promotions, etc.

It is important to keep in mind that any claims in these documents must be viewed with great care. SMP police records are filled with stereotypes, rumor, gossip, slander, and unsubstantiated claims about the individuals it reports on.
