Ed Krause, Alaska's first serial killer. Krause, who preyed on unattached men in southeast Alaska, came to Alaska with the U.S. Army during the Klondike gold rush. Later, he returned, after deserting from his regiment in China. A prominent socialist, Krause ran for the Territorial Legislature in 1912 and had links with radical labor organizations attempting to unionize Juneau mineworkers. The Treadwell Mine hired the Pinkerton Detectives to investigate the disappearance of one of their employees because they felt union violence might be involved.Authentic Uniforms and Office

Take a walk back in time as you view a number of antique Alaska law enforcement uniforms displayed in an authentic early police office setting. Another fascinating display depicts the first women in Alaska law enforcement.

Restored 1952 Hudson Hornet

In 1951 the Hudson Motor Car Company introduced the Hornet. The Hornet sat featured a modified version of the Super Six chassis and was outfitted with a 262 and 308 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine. In 1952, it won 27 NASCAR Grand National races. Its power and excellent road handling, made it an ideal Alaska law enforcement vehicle.

Patches and Insignias

Visitors from Alaska and around the world enjoy viewing the fascinating collection of uniforms as well as patches and badges from law enforcement agencies from every state. They are arranged so you can find your state's patches, or perhaps you'll want to donate one for display.
