Phoenix to re-open police museum at its new site

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police are ready to open the doors of the agency's museum in a new home.

Mayor Greg Stanton and Police Chief Daniel Garcia are among the officials who will open the Phoenix Police Museum on Wednesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The new museum will be located at the site of the original police headquarters inside the Historic City Hall.

City officials say the museum will feature a replica of a 1800s-era jail cell, interactive displays and a memorial room with stained-glass windows honoring fallen officers.

They say this new location offers a much larger space to showcase the department's equipment from decades past.
