The San Jose Police Historical Society has collected photos, artifacts and documents that chronicles the history and tells the story of the men and women who built this department into one of the most recognized and respected law enforcement agencies in the world. 

The San Jose Police Historical Society was formed in 1992 by San Jose Police Captain Steve D'Arcy (retired) who saw a need and a desire to preserve the long and rich history of the police department.  With the volunteer help of like-minded officers, volunteers, family members and other city employees the Historical Society was born.  During that time the Historical Society has worked to not only preserve and collect the stories and document our history, but put it on display through various events both in and around the San Jose area.
