A disused police station erected in 1884 in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen provides the authentic setting for the Danish Police Museum. The museum features the history of the Danish police force from its founding in the 1680s to the present day. Explore the progress in fields such as crime and punishment and learn more about prison life. A visit to the Danish Police Museum also gives you the opportunity to learn more about a particularly dark period in the country’s history: The German occupation  during World War II where hundreds of police officers were deported to concentration camps.
