About LAPM Research Services

At The Los Angeles Police Museum, we are committed to making the amazing history of the LAPD accessible to anyone with the desire to learn more about it. Click one of the sections below to learn more about the services we offer to our members and non-members.

On a limited basis, members can receive information related to the history of the LAPD from sources housed at the historical society. Service records (personnel files) of police officers are the property of the City of Los Angeles, and no information contained within these records is available at LAPM. Information relating to places, dates and the history of the LAPD is generally available from the research staff.

An hourly fee of $75 will be charged for research conducted by LAPM staff. All research requests must be sent via e-mail. It will take a minimum of 5 business days to complete research requests.

Digital reproductions of more than 1000 images are available for non-commercial use. All images are black and white. 8×10 images are available for $25.00 each plus shipping and handling.

Simple research requests can be submitted to info@lapolicemuseum.org.

 

For more involved research requests please contact the Museum at (323)344-9445.
