Abstract: The Dublin Metropolitan Police (DMP) general register covers recruitment and transfers within the Dublin Metropolitan Police. The first 252 pages of this volume are available through the UCD Digital Library. There are 12,567 entries on these pages, covering the period 1837-1925. Following this period the General Register was taken into use by An Garda Síochána and the remaining pages involve the movement of Gardaí to the Dublin Metropolitan Area. Use of the General Register continued until 1975 although only the entries up to 1925 have been digitised and made available online for data protection reasons. Each entry records the following details: warrant number, name, age, height, trade or occupation, county, parish, post town, previous public service, by whom recommended, divisions attached to, service details (dates, rank, promotions etc.), good service pay, date and cause of removal from the force, reappointment details, and general observations. Religion was added from 1858 (p. 117).
