Now police history is also available as a listening experience. The new multimedia guide makes it possible. The 200-year history of the police force is told not only in German and English – for the first time also in Low German. With his distinctive Low German voice, Gerd Spiekermann liked to speak the texts of the "Udels and Krimsches" – after all, he is Hamburg’s police commissioner.

The acoustic journey through time through 200 years of Hamburg police history takes 45 minutes. Events such as the Hamburg Uprising of 1923 or the police during National Socialism can be found in it as well as the time of the student movement, the clashes around Hafenstrasse or the Hamburg Kessel in 1986. Contemporary witnesses to the Hamburg police come as well as historians. The multimedia guide is available at the museum box office for EUR 2.-.
Exhibits such as the pimple hood from the imperial period and the evidence case the beginnings of the 20th century tell how and why the tasks and self-image of the Hamburg police have changed.
