Policing a Changed City

New York City Police Museum

About This Project

New York City Police Museum
Date: June 2007, Scope: 1,000 square feet

Through large-scale photography and original interview footage on interactive displays, the exhibit immerses visitors in a behind-the-scenes view of what it means to secure New York City. The exhibition documents the significant transformation of the NYPD from a traditional crime-fighting organization to one that places an equally strong focus on counterterrorism. Evidence Design worked closely with the NYC Police Museum and directly with the NYPD, interviewing top-ranking officers and commissioners to develop content and collect materials for the exhibition. Interactives feature footage of NYPD Liaison officers stationed in 12 foreign cities – interviewed for the first time ever. The Real Time Crime Center interactive allows visitors to solve real crimes with an interface that emulates the NYPD’s RTCC software.
