Los Angeles, California

The Los Angeles Police Historical Society (LAPHS) was founded in 1989 to create a world class museum that displays the rich history of the LAPD. The Department has played a large role in the development of the City of Los Angeles and the history will not only reflect the numerous contributions from its beginning on March 10, 1869, but also the many adversities experienced on the road to becoming the most professional police department in the world.

The museum is located in the Highland Park Police Station built in 1925. The station was closed in 1983 and subsequently ravaged by vandals, arson fires and water damage. Since then, it has been salvaged and restored by the Historical Society to its original Renaissance Revival style and it is a registered National Historic landmark. The building is leased to LAPHS and also houses the Society’s administrative offices.

If you are interested in membership, archival research, stories, photographs, and/or a product catalog, please contact the Los Angeles Police Historical Society at 1-877-804-1523 or 323-344-9445
