Portland Police Historical Society
Portland, OR

The Portland Police Museum is a project of the Portland Police Historical Society and has been in existence since 1976. The Portland Police Historical Society is a non-profit organization formed by the members of the Portland Police Bureau and interested groups and individuals.

One half of the museum features a series of chronologically arranged exhibits offering photographs, equipment and uniform artifacts. The emphasis is upon the experience of the individual Portland Police Officer over the last 150 years.

The other half of the museum displays a variety of photographs and documents featuring specific officers using items from the museum archive.

In addition, visitors are welcome to use the newly dedicated Memorial Room to contemplate the sacrifice of the twenty-six Portland Police officers killed in the line of duty since 1867.
