PROJECT RUC 100

One hundred years ago on the 1st June 1922, the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC was established as the police force for Northern Ireland. This website was officially opened on the 1st June 2022, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Force.

About Us:

     

We are Project RUC 100, a non-political and independent history and remembrance project team of former police officers who wish to publicly recognise, promote and protect the history of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC and to commemorate the centenary of the Force’s foundation during June 1922. This website provides online opportunities for all who served and supported the Force, including military personnel, civil servants and civilian contractors, to ensure that the history of the Force is not forgotten but is accurately written by those who served, suffered and survived.

 

We hope this online facility will develop into a creditable and enjoyable source of learning for all and attract respectful remembrance tributes.

 

Project RUC 100 is financed and maintained solely by volunteer former police officers and is totally independent.

Our Purpose:  

    

To provide online opportunities to publicly commemorate the centenary of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC during June 2022 by developing a historical and remembrance website designed to record and honour the service, sacrifice and achievements of the Force and its military and civilian support staff and contractors.


To contribute towards “marking the sacrifices and honouring the achievements of the Royal Ulster Constabulary” as required by sections 1 & 70 of the Police (NI) Act 2000 and the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Foundation Regulations 2002 and to provide opportunities for personal tributes from widows, orphans and relatives.


To facilitate accounts of personal and family suffering by the bereaved, disabled and injured including those intimidated and under threats of violence. 


To encourage and enable individuals and groups to share their knowledge and experiences in order to ensure the history of the Force is not forgotten but written, authenticated, presented and preserved by those who served, suffered and survived.


To provide an online ‘museum’ to display police related items of interest including personal collections and Operation Banner mementos and to act as a community research facility.


To support the work of already established police welfare, social, charity, community and historical organisations. 


To establish a global network of former police officers to act as volunteers and contributors and researchers to assist with the development of Project RUC 100.


To provide an international ‘Cop Shop’ to display, advertise and sell police arts & crafts, books, memorabilia, commercial services, social, community and charity events.
