The City of Raleigh Museum will celebrate National Police Week with a new week-long exhibit that highlights the history of the Raleigh Police Department.

The exhibition opens Tuesday, May 16, and will run through Sunday, May 21. Admission is free. The exhibit celebrates the over 200 years of service in which the Raleigh Police Department remains dedicated to fulfilling its primary mission — to protect and serve.

“This exhibit contains many pieces of Raleigh Police equipment and memorabilia that help us to tell the story of our agency through the years,” said Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown. “We hope that you will come out and enjoy our tour of history.”

Visitors to the exhibit will view the progression of rank of the Raleigh Police Department and discover how transportation and technology have changed through time. In addition, a display of the Department’s eight fallen officers will be on hand.

The City of Raleigh Museum is located at 220 Fayetteville Street and is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. on Sundays. For more information about the museum, call 919-996-2220.
