This will include the force’s Mounted Section, with horses parading outside the museum and the dogs performing demonstrations.

There will be a number of vehicles on display, also outside the museum, including a 1970s Ford Mexico and a Norton Triumph motorbike along with more modern vehicles such as the dual-purpose BMW F800.

Clothing and equipment used by the force over the last 40 years will also be on display. Music will be provided by the force band who will be playing a selection of tunes from the past 40 years.

Chief Constable Sir Jon Murphy, said: “This year is a real landmark for the force and a number of events are being held to celebrate Merseyside Police turning forty. It’s really pleasing to see that the local events that have already been held have been very well attended.

“The open day being held on Saturday, 28 June at the Museum of Liverpool will be a fantastic opportunity for people from across the region to come and meet officers and get an insight into how the force has changed in forty years.

“There are some really exciting displays on show including our dogs and horses and anyone with a passion for vintage cars will want to see the Ford Escort Mexico in police livery.

“One of the major developments over the last forty years is the technology used by the force and there will be an interactive Crime Scene Investigator workshop on offer throughout the day.

“This event is free for everyone and I would encourage as many people as possible to come along.”
