1950's and 1960's Police Items

 

The Museum of Idaho recently joined forces with the Idaho Falls Police Department to preserve important objects that help tell the story of law enforcement in our community.  Among the items donated are riot helmets from the 1960s, a 1950s “Dragnet” era camera, and early examples of stun guns used by the Idaho Falls Police Department.  We are excited to be able to preserve, exhibit and protect this collection.  And we are grateful to the Idaho Falls Police Department for their generous gift and for their service to our community.
