Project Overview

Cop Gate - Crump Station

The Crump Station of the Memphis Police Department is located at 949 E.H. Crump Boulevard near downtown. Two gateway elements frame the entrance to the parking lot behind the station like heralds. The work’s massive, upright design projects the expectations of the public on our gatekeepers of law and order. Blue, the color of hope, adds brightness and visibility.
