Toledo Police Museum
Open every Saturday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. Free Admission.
In 1867, Ohio legislature passed the Metropolitan Police Law which required a full time paid police force for the City of Toledo. At 8 AM on April 27, 1867, the "MP's" as they were respectfully called by the public, took charge of policing the City of Toledo.
The Toledo Police Museum has two walkways that meet at the entrance to the museum. We place memorial bricks in the sidewalks in the spring and again in the fall. If you are interested in purchasing a brick download an order form here.
Though we do sell items in our gift shop, we do not yet provide them online. Items can be purchased at the Toledo Police Museum, and some select items are available at the Toledo Police Federal Credit Union.
The Toledo Police Museum is a 501(c)(3) organization. We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations. We appreciate all donations. Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. For ways you can support the museum, click here.
We are always looking for retired and/or active police officers or their family members to work as a volunteer. We need volunteers to do research, clean, staff the museum and assist with museum maintenance. Click here for a form and mail it in! We would love to have you!
