arrow donations

The The Greater Cincinnati Police Museum is incorporated and registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which means any financial support or donated property is tax-deductible. We issue receipts for all donations, including anonymous donations.


We are looking for 1000 active and retired law enforcement employees and friends to support our Roll of Honor campaign by pledging to donate an average of $100 a year (less than 20¢ a day after taxes) for ten years.

Donations can be made periodically or in full and by various methods including Credit Union account transfers, electronic checks, cash, checks, PayPal, etc.

Please download a Roll of Honor application, complete it, and mail it to the Museum.

We are, of course, accepting applications for 5K Roll of Honor, equivalent to a cup of coffee a day, $500 a year, and $5000 in ten years.

We have signed up a couple of 10K Roll of Honorees and one 25K Roll of Honoree!

Please contact CinPD SGT William T. Beuke RET at for more information.

Photographs and Images

Photographs, tin-types, postcards, and other images are a tremendous source of history and information and very often the source of most interest in the Museum.

We accept donations or short term loans for purposes of replication.

Records and Reports
Papers, reports, and documents such as old policies, procedures, staff reports, annual and monthly publications, patrol officers' and detective's notebooks, police blotters, commemorative memorials, etc. are our best source of definitive history and information.
