Future of the Convention Center South Building Site


Future of Convention Cetner South Building The Phoenix City Council has requested public input on the future of the Phoenix Convention Center (PCC) South Building site. The Phoenix Convention Center and Community and Economic Development departments will hold a series of community outreach meetings to discuss and collect feedback about the future of the Convention Center South Building site. City staff will present information on the history, use and future options of the South Building and site. Feedback collected will be presented to the Phoenix City Council this fall.

The South Building along with North and West Buildings make up the Phoenix Convention Center campus. In 2002, the Phoenix City Council adopted the expansion master plan, which consisted of three phases:

Phases 1 and 2 were completed with the construction of the new West and North Buildings as well as the refurbishing of the South Building. Phase 1 and 2 was a $600 million project jointly funded by the state of Arizona and the city of Phoenix. 

Phase 3 was the proposed future development of a new South Building and expansion of the existing site.

Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

Review Frequently Asked Questions. Activate blue buttons to reveal answers.

Question 1: What is?

Answer: We expect to have full deployment in Patrol (every responding officer and sergeant) completed by August, 2019, as well as our Crisis Intervention Team Squads. The remaining details will begin soon after to include the Downtown Operations Unit, Transportation Bureau-Traffic & Transit Units, and the Special Assignments Unit—our version of SWAT.

Question 2: What ?

Answer: Typically an allegation of misconduct is routed to our Professional Standards Bureau, what many refer to as Internal Affairs. A supervisor, sergeant or above, will review the incident for possible misconduct and/or policy violation. It may then rise to an internal investigation or be sent to the officer’s precinct to handle internally, depending on the severity.

Question 3: What ?

Answer: The Police Chief may decide to temporarily assign an officer to a position with minimal or no public contact until such time as an inquiry is resolved. This allows the employee to remain productive while on duty. The decision to place an officer on administrative duty also provides investigators in the Professional Standards Bureau the ability to have them immediately respond to their office for questioning regarding the incident.

Question 4: Will ?

Answer: Yes. This is in accordance with labor agreements. Unless or until an investigation is concluded, due process will be carried out.

Question 5: What ?

Answer: Based on the results of an internal investigation, or a violation of policy or law so serious, the Police Chief may decide to terminate an employee. The decision to revoke an officer’s certification, or order the reinstatement of a terminated employee, is made by the Arizona Police Officers Standards and Training Board (AZPOST).

Question 6: What ?

Answer: Complaints may be made either by phone to our Professional Standards Bureau, (602) 262-4580, in person at 17 South 2nd Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85003, or online at Phoenix.gov/Police/Neighborhood-Resources/Comm​endations-Complaints.

Question 7: What ?

Answer: Any employee is obligated to report misconduct to a supervisor as they become aware. Employees may also report other employees suspected of fraud (embezzlement; contract fraud; vendor kickbacks; removal, loss, unauthorized destruction, or inappropriate use or waste of city money or property; falsified documents; specific danger to public health or non-emergency safety issues; or other violations of laws or regulations) using an online form at Phoenix.gov/Auditor/Fraud-Reporting

Question 8: How ?

Answer: Requests for Police public records (i.e. police reports, accident reports, etc.) may be made either in person at Code Enforcement Unit, 1717 East Grant Street, Suite 100, or online by visiting Phoenix.gov/AtYourService (select the Police Public Records Request button). For information about other public records (including Municipal Court, Fire Department, or other City Departments) see and review the Find Public Records page at Phoenix.gov/PIO/Public-Records.
