Shame I missed this, but when I went to the museum a few years back I learned something really interesting - the Police in Glasgow is really close to the one in Sweden:

Was once on a weekend break in Stewart Street but taken at 6am on the Monday to Turnbull Street for court appearance and spent the time from 6am to going up in that holding cell - never forget the we jakey who was desperate for a drink cupping his hands and flushing that cistern to get water...........
