- More than 4000 regalia pieces including: pins, buttons, badges, uniform flashes and medals.
- Excess of 1000 artifacts that illustrate the way science and the art of photography has evolved throughout the 20th century.
- Tools and occupational equipment both unique to policing and universally necessary such as: radios, computers, call boxes, radar guns, breathalyzers, body armour and much more!
