Honoring policing from before the 1829 Metropolitan Police Act in England through the modern era of law enforcement, this extensive collection of artifacts is a visual chronicle of the tools and work of police officers. See advances made in uniforms, training, evidence collection, personal protection, and historic items, such as the 1866 Oregon Boot restraint, 1925 tear gas baton, and the 1950s Identakit for creating facial images. Try on a Bobbie helmet, bulletproof vest and taking sample fingerprints.
