Rich history

The popularity of this traditional whistle has endured for generations. Originally created 150 years ago for the Metropolitan Police as an alternative to heavy rattles, it made their communications more efficient and 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 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.
