If you have an interest in police history or you feel the need to homage to those who protect and defend, consider a visit to the Phoenix Police Museum. There is no admission charge and the museum welcomes everyone to come and learn. Donations are accepted, but not required. The museum is located on South Central Avenue on the corner of Central and Jefferson. It is inside of the Barrister Place Building. Membership to the museum is available and you can join more than 1,200 members who send a $24 donation to the museum each year. Members receive the semi-annual Historian newsletter, as well as collector pins and gift shop discounts. The museum is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 am until 3 pm. The museum was founded in the fall of 1993 and began as a small exhibit at City Hall. Over the course of two decades, the museum grew, receiving funding from a variety of sources. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the museum received materials from the World Trade Center in memoriam of the tragic event. The Phoenix Police Museum is a great place to visit if you have an interest in law enforcement or if you want to learn more about the history of the police force.
