The Cleveland Police Historical Society (CPHS) and Museum announces a new exhibit: The Cleveland Air Police

clevpolicmuseum2In recognition of the innovations of the Cleveland Division of Police over the decades, the Cleveland Police Museum is highlighting the first Cleveland “aerial police squadron.”  The only police department outside of New York City to implement an air corps in the 1930s.

A new display of the Cleveland Air Police is open in time for the 2014 Cleveland National Air show.  The display includes photos of the National Air Races and an official Air Police uniform blouse, complete with CPD buttons, a CPD “Air Police” badge and pilots wings.

Read the 1931 Cleveland Plain Dealer article that identifies the fourteen Cleveland pilots, all with long records of achievement in aviation, who comprised this squadron.

The Museum is open Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
