Los Angeles Police Museum Will Temporarily Close Beginning Tuesday March 17, 2020 until further notice due to Covid-19.


While LAPM’s mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret the history of LAPD, our foremost priority is the health and safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and neighbors. Following recommendations from the Mayor’s office, we will temporarily be closed beginning March 17, 2020 until further notice due to Covid-19.


Staff will be available by phone and email for any questions.

LAPM will continue to monitor the situation and work with Los Angeles County to assess the need for the continued closure of our public spaces and will notify you immediately of any updates by email, our website, and through social media. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to email us at info@lapolicemuseum.org. We look forward to welcoming you back to LAPM soon.

EXPLORE OUR EXHIBITS

Onion Field

The Onion Field is a 1973 nonfiction book by Joseph Wambaugh, a sergeant for the Los Angeles Police Department, chronicling the kidnapping of two plainclothes LAPD officers by a pair of criminals during a traffic stop and the subsequent murder of one of the officers.

The Shootout

The North Hollywood shootout was a confrontation between two heavily armed and armored bank robbers, Larry Phillips Jr. and Emil Mătăsăreanu, and members of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in the North Hollywood district of Los Angeles, California, on February 28, 1997. 

Board of Police Commissioners

The Board of Police Commissioners and the Police Department were established by the Los Angeles City Charter effective July 1, 1925. As head of the department, the Board of Police Commissioners sets policies, oversees department operations and works in conjunction with the Chief of Police, who acts as the chief executive officer and reports to the Board.

Adam-12

Adam-12″ debuted in the fall of 1968, bringing a vision of humanity and friendliness to the LAPD’s authoritative blue uniform. The show was created by Bob Cinader and driven by the creator of television’s “Dragnet”, Jack Webb. Kent McCord, who portrayed officer Jim Reed states that his fan base often echoes this simple yet profound sentiment: “I became a police officer because of you.
