New York City Police Museum
The New York City Police Museum is a tribute to NYPD heroes from the past to the present. This vast museum includes sections dedicated to all parts of the police life.
The different sections include things like a tribute to the different vehicles used by police officers, and a section dedicated to notorious criminals. Here there is history about the most famous criminals of the past. You can also view a rotating evidence camera. Those two are just some of the examples of the many exhibits this museum has to offer.
Throughout the year various touring exhibits come through the New York City Police Museum. Currently, an exhibit titled Behind the Green Lights is showing. Here visitors can take a peak in an early 20th century stationhouse.
There are also several events that take place at the museum. In the fall of 2005 the museum will host a mystery writers series. Here mystery novelists will discus how they developed their writing career, and how they create characters in mystery suspense novels. Single event tickets are $10 for the public.
One of the most famous fixtures at the New York City Police Museum is a recent addition. It is a permanent exhibit entitled NYPD Heroes 911 Remembered. This is a tribute to all the heroes and police offers who gave their lives on 9/11/01 and the events that took place that day. Their souls will not be forgotten.
