Police Academy Museum
This free museum tells the history of the police force in New York City. The evolution in their uniforms is charted, with badges and caps on display. Weapons including clubs, nightsticks and a multitude of guns are shown. Documents describe crimes prevented, solved or still unexplained over the years; liquor raids from the time of Prohibition have given way to drug busts and date rape. The exhibition does not shy away from the problems of today, and there is a highly informative presentation concerning drug addiction and gang violence.
