Dorset Constabulary

The back of the plate reads "Replica of the Commemorative Plaque presented to Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh by Dorset Police on 23rd March, 1979"
The one on display (I should hope) in Buckingham Palace was hand painted by Pat Summers, the one above is transfer printed and was made in limited numbers to be shared amongst Dorset's Finest.  
I really like the ?disproportionate focus on sheep rustling and the celebration of the very high-tech looking desk.  I don't think the back office functions of Dorset Police would feature quite so prominently if the plate was made today.
