The Houston Police Museum replaced the old Museum at the HPD Academy Building to give it greater visibility and a more modern appearance. The Museum houses over 3,000 square feet of exhibition space, including a retired helicopter suspended from the ceiling. The exterior glazing that surrounds the exhibition area is wrapped in a UV protective film that shields the delicate, historical items on display, while drawing attention to the new Museum’s presence.
One of the most prominent aspects of the Museum will be the Department’s Wall of Honor, a dedicated area for the display of badges of officers who have fallen in the line of duty. This space serves as a monument to the brave women and men of Houston’s law enforcement community, as well as a vehicle to educate the public about the service these officers have provided.
