The purpose of the Phoenix Police Museum is to educate the public in the history of the Phoenix Police Department while promoting and preserving our heritage. The Phoenix Police Museum started as a small exhibit at the Historic City Hall in 1993 eventually moving to Barrister Place Building.  Through generous donations the first full exhibit was available for public view on Friday, Oct. 6, 1995.  In 2012 the museum moved to its permanent location at Historic City Hall which was the home of our police department from 1928 until 1975. The Phoenix Police Museum is an IRS approved non profit 501C3 organization overseen by a Board of Directors.  It is supported through donations by police and city employees, businesses and organizations. Your purchase from our new online store helps us continue to provide a quality museum experience as well as offering great products for purchase. 

We hope you can visit our museum soon.
