About

The Story Behind
Cops & Cruisers at the Capitol

The Phoenix Police Museum preserves a part of Arizona’s law enforcement history. The museum includes exhibits and interactive tours focused on history and law enforcement’s relationship with the public. We also house the only dedicated Phoenix Police Officers Memorial Room; a solemn venue where friends, family and the public can honor our fallen as well as learn the story of each officer. Cops & Cruisers at the Capitol was created to highlight our current fleet of historic police vehicles and provide the community a chance to be included. We currently have four vehicles in our care and are working on a fifth. They range in time from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. It’s a unique car show that will feature classic, muscle, sports, antique, truck, motorcycle and special interest vehicles. The proceeds from this event allow us to create new exhibits, pay for upkeep and maintenance, and provide community outreach efforts to educate the public.

    The Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza is an urban park and gathering place, located in front of the Arizona state capitol complex in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. It serves as a home to a number of memorials honoring prominent figures in Arizona history as well as memorializing significant wars and other events that have affected the state. It is designated as one of the Phoenix Points of Pride. 

    The plaza was established on March 9, 1978, by the Arizona Legislature in honor of Governor Wesley Bolin, who had died a mere 5 days previously on March 4. Prior to the resolution creating the plaza, it had simply been a part of the Legislative Governmental Mall. While the plaza exists only as a part of the Mall, in common usage the terms are interchangeable and the name of the plaza is often used in preference to the Mall.

    Much like the National Mall on which it is loosely based, the Legislative Governmental Mall is intended as an open-air public space featuring monuments, memorials and gardens. Some of these monuments were erected prior to the inception of the Plaza, such as the monument to the USS Arizona which was dedicated over a year earlier on December 7, 1976. The Plaza, when dedicated, included these existing memorials and all subsequent memorials have been located within the boundaries of the plaza.

    Also located in the Plaza is the memorial dedicated to the 158th Infantry Regiment, the oldest and most prestigious unit in Arizona. The monument, based off a captured Japanese monument in the Philippines, stands as one of the few if only memorials to the regiment which served as one of the premier units of World War II.
