Description :

The New York Police Museum is across the street from the famous stock market bull statue in the old Canard Line building and just up the street from the National Museum of the American Indian. It's a bit larger than its counterpart, the New York Fire Museum, but it has the same type of exhibits. Most of the material on display is memorabilia showing that development of police work over time; uniforms, badges, medals, motorcycles and a squad car. The museum also gives information about the structure and function of the contemporary police force; what the Transit and using and numerous other divisions are and what they do. The museum also has an interesting exhibit about modern forensic science. A visit to the lice Museum should only take half an hour to an hour and is interesting mainly as a curiosity stop if you're in the area.
