Glendale Police Department Museum Glendale, AZ

The new home for the Glendale Police Department Museum was dedicated on August 20, 2010. Located in the City of Glendale Public Safety Building lobby, the Museum is one of a very few of its kind in Arizona, and is proudly dedicated to the men and women in law enforcement.

The opening of the Museum was made possible by the generosity of the Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors who recently awarded a grant to retired GPD Officer Dan Kallberg to fund the Glendale Police Department Museum in our lobby. This grant has transformed the lobby to reflect a professional, tasteful display of Glendale Police Department history.

With the assistance of the City of Glendale Arts Department, the exhibit space with over 100 years of Glendale Police Department memorabilia will be an exciting and lasting reflection of our law enforcement history. As the museum process continues to enhance the second floor, please take the time to visit the Glendale Public Safety Building lobby and enjoy the transformation.

The Glendale Police Department Museum was recently profiled on "City Beat", the City of Glendale’s award-winning newscast hosted by Jon Brictson. City Beat is a fast-paced look at city news, information and what’s happening in Glendale.

Location: 6835 N 57th Drive, Glendale, AZ 85301 Museum Hours: Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m
