Police Review magazine celebrates 6,000th issue

The weekly B2B magazine for police officers, Jane's Police Review, has celebrated the publication of its 6,000th issue this morning.

The title, which launched in 1893 as The Police Review, said it had not missed a single issue - despite a 1996 IRA bombing that destroyed the building in London's Docklands that housed the title.

Jonathan Shephard, chief executive of the Periodical Publishers Association, said: "Any title that started in the 19th century and is still flourishing in the 21st century must have shown real must-have value, together with a remarkable ability to adapt."

Currently edited by Chris Herbert, the magazine is owned by Jane's Information Group - the specialist military and maritime B2B publisher.
