Queensland Police Museum
In 1864 Queensland became the fifth state to gain its own police department and since then every element of policing practice has evolved dramatically. The Queensland Police Museum (QPM) is dedicated to collecting, documenting, preserving and exhibiting the history of policing in this state. Our exhibition space incorporates 25 displays illustrating a range of policing themes. Our display now includes an Augmented Reality Crime Scene. Our Research Library is home to a monograph collection, as well as archival material and images that date back to 1864. The QPM utilises its archival resources, exhibitions and public programs to compare policing of today and of yesterday. NOTE: Our collections may contain the names and images of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now deceased.
