The last Official South Wales Police set of Cop Cards was issued in 1991 and featured “Sportacards” in conjunction with local Leisure centres. However, in 1992 the Rumney Police Division, together with a local firm of Chartered Accountants, RITCHIE from Butetown, Cardiff, went ahead with its own cards. Unlike previous issues, these cards were not given out individually to children, but were presented as complete framed prizes in a local schools crime prevention competition. The first such prizes when presented were featured in local media articles. However, it would appear that the use of the South Wales Police logo on these cards was never formally sanctioned and very few sets were ever actually presented as prizes, thus this series cannot really be called a true Cop Card.
However, these cards do exist with a Police reference and for that reason I list and detail them below.
One small point, all of these issues are available with alternative backs. They exist with the Police reverse but also exist with a Ritchie back, and both types have identical fronts.
