Introducing the Acme police whistle

Crafted from high-quality materials, the Acme police whistle has a brilliant sound quality and can be heard from up to a mile away! Its robust construction makes it both durable and long lasting, and alongside a distinct sound which projects over long distances, this reliable whistle has a variety of uses. Ideal for school shows, studio recordings and even sports days, the Acme police whistle has also proven popular with scout and guide groups over the years.

Rich history

The popularity of this traditional whistle has endured for generations. It was originally created 150 years ago for the Metropolitan Police, who were keen to find a better way for the “Bobby on the Beat” to communicate with nearby colleagues when in need of help. As an improvement to heavy rattles, it made their communication more efficient, and within one year of inventing his first police whistle Joseph Hudson had taken orders for over 250,000 whistles and was employing 50 people in his Buckingham Street factory. It has since become an icon of British police heritage. Additionally, these whistles were used in the trenches during World War I.

Hand made in the UK

To this day Acme police whistles are manufactured in Birmingham using the original techniques and machinery from the 1800s. Outstanding craftsmanship and strict quality testing ensure every whistle is of the highest standard.
