Gangsters, bootleggers and runaway trains.. these are just a few stories from the 80-year history of the Edina Police Department. Find out more at the City of Edina web site. Police officer Kevin Rofidal serves as the department historian and has gathered hundreds of photos, some of them shown on an on-line slide show.
Kevin helped us create an exhibit showcasing the history of Edina's Police and Fire Departments a few years ago and continues to collect artifacts and photos, as well as interview retiring officers for their stories from Edina history.
The web site contains only a small portion of the department's history. Visit our research library to access more information from our collection.
