I visited the Museum earlier this year, and was greatly impressed at the collection of artifacts, memorabilia, displays and information. You can take a trip back in time, viewing all the journals, books, photographs and equipment used by the SDPD from its early beginnings to the present. Authentic and vintage, the items give the visitor a real insight to how far law enforcement has come. The dispatch/switchboard unit from the 1960's or 70's is so small and basic compared to the sophisticated high-tech methods used now. The collection of badges, uniforms, firearms is really extensive. Highly educational, this museum offers everyone from school-age youngsters, to vintage collectors a wonderful piece of law enforcement history. There is a nice gift shop, and helpful, friendly docents to answer questions; or you can take a self-guided tour, as I did. The entrance fee is by donation, and parking on-site is no problem.
Please do visit this wonderful Museum and linger awhile among these fine displays of SDPD's history, you will not be disappointed.
