Hidden Objects: My Valentine

February 14, 2020 | Authored by Lauren Sydney

“Be my valentine! and ‘poleece’ stop juggling my heart around.”

Hey! There’s a typo in that Valentine’s Day card!
No, the card maker is just trying to be “pun-y”!

We have thousands of objects in our collection related to the history of American policing. Not all of them are of a serious nature. This mid-twentieth century Valentine’s Day card has a mechanical element to it – the clown rotates back and forth.

The National Law Enforcement Museum has thousands of law enforcement artifacts in our archives; too many to display at once. We offer this regularly scheduled blog to give you a peek into our archives.
