One of the most unique precincts in the Memphis Police Department is the South Main Station, formerly the Downtown Precinct. The South Main Station is under the command of Deputy Chief Steve Cole. In January 1994, the Beale Street Substation, which was staffed by officers from the West Precinct, became the Downtown Precinct - the city's sixth fully operational precinct.
While in square miles and residential population the smallest precinct, the South Main Station swells to several hundred thousand people a day due to a large workforce population, various downtown events held during the year, and the many tourists who visit historic sites such as Beale Street and the Civil Rights Museum.
In the fall of 2000 the South Main Station relocated to the newly renovated Central Train Station as part of the South Main/Downtown Revitalization Project. The South Main Station has the largest bike patrol unit and also is the site of the MPD Police Museum which closed in December of 2005.
