Donate to the CLEHS

The California Law Enforcement Historical Society was established in 2001 to preserve and honor the rich history of the peace officers who have served within the State of California. Our objective is to link those interested in preserving history to a forum for education, research, and the enjoyment of our past.

The Historical Society is a non-profit, 501 © 3 organization, that receives no government support and is entirely supported by membership dues and cash donations.

To make it easier to donate, we have added an online Donate button on our web site. The black and yellow button is on the right side of each page, below the page listings, and allows donation in any amount through PayPal.

Another way to support the Historical Society is by shopping at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to the Historical Society. Click here for AmazonSmile
