Police Providence: 3 Centuries of Policing in Rhode Island's Capital City
August 5th - September 29th
Reception August 12th 5pm - 7pm

The Providence City Archives, in conjunction with the Providence Public Library, is hosting a two-part exhibit to mark the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Providence Police Department. The exhibit, "Police Providence: 3 Centuries of Policing in Rhode Island's Capital City," features artifacts, historical photos, and documents from the City Archives, the Providence Police Archive, and recently donated objects from a private collection.

The City Hall portion of the exhibit chronicles policing in Providence from the settlement of Providence to 1900, while the Providence Public Library exhibit carries the story through the 20th century to the present. Some of the more interesting items on display include an early police uniform and service revolver, an arrest ledger from 1865, "mug" shots, a gas billy, and an early 19th century "clapper" alarm.

The portraits cover a 150-year period (1832 - 1991) and are the most complete collection of mayoral portraits in the United States. Framed biographies of each mayor are currently being installed adjacent to the portraits. More Info
