Spent about 1 hour, no admission charge at Police Headquarters. Displays set up relative to history of force and some previous crimes in the city. Worth the visit.

If you have an interest in policing this is a decent wee museum.
We were welcomed by two officers that searched our bags, one even gave us a song, he didn’t do requests though.
We had a wee wonder around and the various bits and pieces.
The museum works on donations so we donated on the way out and then visited the gift shop. The museum is actually part of the headquarters.

This museum is portrayed to be small but inside it covers a good sized space and is well thought out and interesting in general policing that goes way back. If you have a couple hours, don't pass this one up. They do require advance notice of your visit.

An interesting compact history of the Toronto Police Force and its notorious cases since 1850s. Photo opportunities by crashed police cars and old style police station. The highlight was the lively talk by the historical researcher who brings the exhibits alive , is so knowledgeable and clearly loves her subject.

You can make the criminal background check or vulnerable sector check here. The latter is more expensive and more complicated. $65 for 2-3 weeks, double price to expedite. Only money order or certified check are accepted. If you don't have, the nearest RBC branches are within 250 meters on Young street, one north, one south. Paid to Toronto police service. Once you have the signed form, notified copy of ID and the check, you can drop them in the collection box. Service is nice but a bit complicated. As long as you see the word vulnerable, don't make the common criminal check.

Washroom on the right of entrance. The museum is free. If you pass by, can walk in and have a look.
