Explore the history of the Cleveland Police Department at the Bay Village Library
The Cleveland Police Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the Cleveland Police Department, which was formed in 1866. It exists to use its collection and programs to educate the public and foster mutual understanding and respect between law enforcement and the public. Policing Cleveland 100 years ago drastically changed by the 1920s when Prohibition was implemented.
Please join us for this presentation in which the rich history, artifacts and documents from the Cleveland Police Department during the Progressive Era (1890-1914) to The Depression (1914-1933) will be discussed. Registration for this program, to be held on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., is requested by calling the Bay Village Branch at 440-871-6392 or register online, at cuyahogalibrary.org.
