Sacramento Police Department Collection open
This collection contains a wide range of material spanning most of the the SPD's history. The majority of the collection is made up of mug books (1860-1949) and jail registers (1867-1973). The rest of the collection consists of other logbooks, administrative records, and photographs. More than half of the photographs are portraits or group shots of the police force that date from the first half of the 20th century.
