A collection of promotional materials related to policing in Los Angeles County. The collection contains a series of photographs
taken by Milton K. Bell circa 1960 depicting members of the Arcadia Police Department at work. The photographs, which were
likely commissioned as part of a public relations campaign, show Arcadia police officers investigating crime scenes and motor
vehicle accidents, assisting wounded people, conducting a traffic stop, completing a pat-down, and riding and posing with
their motorcycles. The collection also holds the 1964 edition of the
Compton Police Annual, which was used to raise funds for the Officers Relief Fund.
