Coming Soon . . .
New Exhibit Showcases Police History
Preview Grand Opening: Friday Aug. 2nd, 5:30-7:00
Napa Police Historical Society's mission statement says it all: “To honor those who have sacrificed their time and efforts by remembering the past.”
Join us at a special preview of an extraordinary new exhibit "Preserve-Honor-Educate" on Friday August 2, from 5:30-7 pm at the Museum.
The Napa Police Historical Society was founded in 2006 by Todd Shulman, a police officer with a keen interest in history. Since its founding, the Society has collected over 10,000 digital images, nearly 300 unique documents, over 400 insignias, and almost 300 pieces of memorabilia as well as vintage police vehicles.
As much of this collection as possible will be loaded into our five large display cases and ready for your appreciation at the preview grand opening. A media presentation is also in the works.
Shulman, the organization’s current Board President, will be present to greet attendees and answer any questions. We also hope to see his fellow Board members, Evangeline Tai, Officer Mike Walund, Chief of Police Steve Potter and other representatives and members of the law enforcement community. For more information on this organization, visit their web site: www.napapolicehistory.com
You will have another opportunity to meet Shulman later in the fall as he returns for a “Meet the Author” event. His published works thus far are most likely familiar, “Murder & Mayhem in the Napa Valley” and from the “Images of America” series, “Napa Police”. Date to be determined.
Our preview celebration is free and open to the public. Appetizers will be served; Napa Valley wines will be available, and our ever present and popular gift basket will be raffled.
See you all on Friday Aug. 2nd at 5:30!
