PD Museum

The Selbyville Police Department Museum is now Open.

The Selbyville Museum will be open from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on the 3rd Saturday of each month from April through October of 2023. The current dates are as follows: April 15th, May 20th, June 17th, July 15th, August 19th, September 16th, and October 21st

Within the Selbyville Museum you will find the Selbyville Police Department Museum. Initially started as display of several pieces of antique equipment and newspaper articles for the Town’s Old Timers’ Day Festival in 2005, the display grew quickly during the preparation for the Department’s 75th Anniversary in 2006. Officers searched for articles and photos from the local newspaper dating back to 1938. Also, all previous officers that could be located we contacted for photos and stories.

Initially we focused on the history of our Police Department, but quickly decided to expand to surrounding small Departments and officers.

Our displays include any historical item that we came across, handcuffs, batons, evidence collection items, photos, etc. We also searched out Departments that were in the process of disposing of old equipment to try to obtain items that we did not have. We continually solicit items from the public and visitors who may have relatives who were officers, are retired officers, other small Departments, etc. Also, we encourage visitors to write about stories they may have about an incident or of officers that they know.

Please enjoy the photos and displays, and should you come across a piece of law enforcement history and would like to make a donation, please contact Loryn at the Town Hall at (302) 436-8314 ext. 120 any weekday from 8:00AM to 4:30PM.
