(Funding made possible by a grant from the Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors and donations by Glendale Wal-Mart store.)


The 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 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. The second floor of the Glendale Public Safety Building lobby also includes an area devoted to those officers that served in our nation's branches of the military. 

Our many thanks to the Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors for making this project possible.
