Greater Cincinnati Police Museum
Opened in 2006, the Greater Cincinnati Police Museum honors the legacy of law enforcement in the city and the surrounding region, which includes the adjoining counties in Kentucky and Indiana. As such, the museum is the only one the world dedicated to the regional history of law enforcement. In all, the region includes over 600 communities and 160 local, county, township, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The museum houses 10,000 law enforcement-related artifacts and also features a library and archives. The museum is also unique in that has a memorial to fallen law enforcement officers for the entire region; it is the only such memorial in the world.
