     Police work, police science, has changed dramatically in recent decades.
Those changes are clearly demonstrated in the memorabilia on display
in the Appleton police department museum. 
     The public gets a chance to see those changes Tuesday, August 5th, when
police hold  an open house in the lower-level of the police department from
9 a.m. until noon. 
     There's an extradition order for a Wisconsin man, signed by then-New York
Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt; a replica of a machine gun, used by
Appleton police in the 1930s; and a collage of pictures of men and women
who served the city in public service roles.
     Retired officer Arnie Nettekoven, who served from 1960 to 1990, is
custodian of the collection.  His badge, number 186, is on display.
     History buff or not, it's a collection you should see.  We have a sneak
preview of the memorabilia on our home page, whby.com., under
photo galleries.
     Enjoy!
