SA Police Museum Open Day

SA Police Museum (Jiayuan Liang)

The SA Police Historical Society has assembled a very comprehensive collection of artefacts including uniforms, batons, handcuffs, bicycles, horse-drawn and motor vehicles. It is one of the most comprehensive in Australia. The artefacts are supported by an extremely large display of photographs. Guides will be available to provide information to visitors throughout the day.

Many visitors will have relatives who may have served as Police Officers. A small group from the Research Section will be available to provide information to people who would like some information about their relatives service history.
