About the William B. Kolender Sheriff's Museum

The William B. Kolender Sheriff's Museum preserves and promotes the history of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department for the enlightenment and education of visitors of all ages. Its purpose is fourfold:

  1. To preserve the heritage of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department from its beginning in 1850 to the present.
  2. To install ongoing exhibits that focus on the Department's continuing tradition of service through current programs and achievements.
  3. To maintain an informational atmosphere that is attractive to visitors of all ages, with an emphasis towards creating an educational base for school-age children relating to the role of law enforcement, and an awareness of the social dangers that could threaten their safety.
  4. To provide a repository for artifacts, photographs, documents and other memorabilia pertinent to the history of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
