Irish police records dating back from 1724 have been digitized and are now available online. The records are from the parish of St. John’s in Dublin and have been made available by the Church of Ireland's Representative Church Body (RCB) Library.
The records are comprised of two account books dating from 1724-1785 and seven registers dating from 1765 to 1780. They offer details of crimes committed in the area and the sentences handed down, as well as the names of constables and watchmen.
