Special exhibits in the museum include:

  • Displays of early equipment such as handcuffs, weapons and old books with handwritten entries. The early police identification camera is there along with “mug shots” of criminals and the glass negatives that the pictures were made from
  • Memorabilia from the famous Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, including batons, armbands, and badges issued to the “Special Constables” who were quickly hired to replace the dismissed constables for the duration of the strike
  • A display about Earle ‘The Strangler’ Nelson, a serial sex killer from the United States who was responsible for the deaths of many women across North America until he was captured in Manitoba and met his fate in Winnipeg
  • A jail cell from the North End “E” Division built in 1911, which is an interesting attraction, especially to children
  • A display on the dangers faced by officers in the line of duty. In addition to several bullet-proof vests that have been used for testing, there is one vest that was not intended for the test but in fact, saved the life of one officer when he was shot by a known drug dealer
  • Large artifacts, including a restored 1925 REO Patrol Wagon and a restored 1978 Harley-Davidson and sidecar
