Police, Fire and the Law

It was pointed out to me that we really didn't have anything on the Police, Fire or Legal system in Scotland.  I guess that is in part because the books I had previously looked at doing contained not only considerable quotes in the old Scots language but also considerable legal terms and all in all making it a difficult ocr'ing project.  Thanks to work done to scan in old books several of these books are now available in the Internet archive and so I have availed myself of this resource to make available a few books on these subjects.
