The Vallejo Police Department from 1900 to 2008

On January 26, 2008, the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum opened a new exhibit looking at Vallejo law enforcement, past and present. Beyond the Badge: The Vallejo Police Department from 1900 to 2008 is an intimate look at the Vallejo Police Force, using historical archives and freshly created artwork. The paintings, photographs, photo essays and rarely seen artifacts featured in the exhibit help visitors explore the human dimensions of the job, and its effects on the police officers, their families, and the community. Historic artifacts and photos from the Museum’s permanent collection, combined with numerous items on loan from the community, tell the story of the department’s early years, while new works by several local artists focus on the present day. The Vallejo Museum is located at 734 Marin Street in downtown Vallejo. The exhibit runs through June 28, 2008.
