Officer encourages people to explore Sioux City police history

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A bit of police history is now on display at the Sioux City Police Station. Officers have created a "Hall of History" museum on the second floor of the station.

A wide range of historical and modern items display the evolution of the department.

Including uniforms, official mug shots, weapons, equipment, and actual evidence found at crime scenes.

"Being able to look back and see how we've changed, gotten better as an agency , and instill some pride in the officers as to the history this agency has," said Lt. Rex Mueller.

The display also highlights badges dating back to the 1800's, showing how they've evolved over the years.

The current badge uses a star design taken from one that's a century old.

Officers encourage people to come experience the history first hand.

"We definitely want to welcome the public. We want them to be able to have access and come see this," added Lt. Mueller.

Next month, an official ribbon-cutting is planned during Law Enforcement Week.

To schedule a personal visit, call the Police Department for details.
