LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Police Museum has announced the opening of a new K9 exhibit called “A Day In The Life of a LAPD K9 Unit” open to the public at the end of the month.

The new exhibit will highlight officers and their canine partners.

You don’t have to be a pet lover to appreciate the K9 unit – these remarkable animals save lives and solve mysteries.

The exhibit will reflect how the unit supports departments and operations in the field- searching for evidence, apprehending suspects, and finding lost or missing persons.

These dogs also detect explosives. The teams operate 24 hours a day assisting with emergency calls for service including “officer needs help”, assistance or back-up calls.

The K-9 Platoon is one of the field platoons of Metropolitan Division, and as such is deployed at the direction of the Commanding Officer, Metropolitan Division.

The Los Angeles Police Museum is at 6045 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042 (the old Highland Park Police Station).

The admission price now includes a new Audio Tour. General admission is $9.00, Senior citizens (62+) are $8.00, Children (12 and under) are free!

Hours of Operation: Tuesday through Friday 10:00am-4:00pm, Open on the 3rd Saturday of the month 9:00AM-3:00PM
