Cleveland Police Museum Preserves & Collects History

The Cleveland Police Museum continues to collect and preserve the history of our police, despite the coronavirus!

Although the museum is closed to the public at this time, we are busy creating new exhibits, collecting artifacts and photographs, and sharing the story of the Cleveland Division of Police through our website and social media. When the police museum reopens, a new panel exhibit will be installed: Early Criminal Detection

In 2021, we are focusing on collecting the important history of women in the police department. If you would like to share your story, photographs or artifacts, please contact us.  Cleveland Police Museum-contact us!

The Cleveland Police Historical Society & Museum can only continue its work through the financial support of its members, including active and retired officers of the Cleveland Division of Police.
