Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding New York City Police Museum with additional information or photos.

Since 1857, the NYPD have been keeping the city of New York safe for locals and tourists alike. It wouldn’t be until 1998 that their prestigious history would be cataloged in their own museum. The museum documents the evolution of the NYPD from the rattler wearing Dutch enforcers to today’s modern police officers. Unfortunately, due to hurricane Sandy, the museum is currently closed while it is being repaired.
