Check out our Virtual Exhibits
The Toledo Police Museum Virtual Exhibits compliment our museum by displaying items owned by the museum that are difficult to physically display.
In our newest addition to our virtual exhibits, COPS AND ROBBERS, we tell stories of our past that are rich in content and expose very broad stories that have been impossible to share before.
Note: This exhibit will be updated frequently due to the vast amount of archived information available. 
It is time to start thinking about green grass, sunshine, shade trees, good food, good company and oh yeah, some beautiful classic cars and bikes.
The Eighth Annual Toledo Police Museum Cops and Rodders Car and Bike Show will be held on June 28, 2020 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Thank you for your support and see you at the show!
We have decided to temporarily suspend taking pre-registrations for the upcoming Cops and Rodder's Car Show. We will continue to monitor the COVID 19 situation and make a further determination at the end of April. Thank you for your patience with our efforts to be a conscientious partner in keeping our community safe.
Please join us in keeping all first responders, medical professionals, supermarket employees, cleaning personnel and all those who are on the front lines during this time in your thoughts and prayers.
Toledo Police Department VLOGs!
The Toledo Police Department created a part-time social media team made up of officers from across the department. The team creates VLOGS to help the community understand what we do.
At no time in history have we had such an opportunity to reach so many with our story.

The construction of the Police Alarm Signal System began in 1907. By 1916, there were 136 Gamewell Police Alarm boxes in service. Eventually the police alarm system would have 1,056 miles of wire, almost all underground, serving 248 alarm boxes and 51 auxiliary telephone circuits. Some would be equipped with lights that could be seen at great distances.
