The Louisville Metro Police Department and Acclaim Press have joined forces to publish the first-ever history of the consolidated Louisville Metro Police Department.
Building on the history of the two forces, both city and county, from which it was combined, this book gives us the opportunity to document our legacy in our own words for future generations to enjoy, as it honors the dedicated men and women who serve and have served the Department. Acclaim Press is a leading publisher of law enforcement books. As in the last volume for the city, only the finest materials are used in the production of these outstanding editions. The cover is hardbound, with smyth-sewn binding and printed on glossy, acid-free paper for superior photo reproduction. A special thank you to all those who contributed to the materials for this book.
