The APHF (founded in 1960) is the nation's first national police museum and memorial dedicated to American law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The Museum, through interactive displays, simulators and nearly 11,000 artifacts, educates the public about the history and current trends of American law enforcement. Featured at the Museum is a state-of-the-art 24 lane indoor gun range and is open to the public six days a week. The Memorial lists over 8,000 officers who were killed in the line of duty. Their names are permanently etched on the Memorialís marble walls, which are added to once a year for Police Memorial Day. On Police Memorial Day (May 15th) the Memorial hosts thousands of police officers, family survivors and dignitaries. The event is a somber reminder that every 57 hours, a police officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in America. The Police Museum houses two 501(c)(3) Nonprofit American law enforcement associations, The National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP) and the American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens (AFP&CC). These associations strive to meet the ever growing needs of the American law enforcement community through a variety of programs and services.


Founded in 1967, NACOP promotes and supports the law enforcement profession through a variety of programs and services. NACOP encourages leadership of command law enforcement and private security within the United States and her territories. NACOP encourages a free exchange of information between men and women presently engaged in law enforcement, reserves, security, etc., through publications, meetings, regional training, research endeavors, films and study courses. It also creates the opportunity to recognize and encourage citizens and law enforcement officers for their community deeds of bravery and valor through the medium of an awards program.

These programs are supported through the generosity of over 130,000 donors and members nationwide. Also, AFP&CC publishes the Police Times Magazine and Police Family Survivor Fund Quarterly Newsletter. The American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens (AFP&CC) was incorporated in 1978 to serve the rank and file police officer. Over the years, the vision for AFP&CC has grown to include crime prevention, public safety and police family survivor programs. As the program focus has grown, so has support from the public. Through the generous support of our donors, AFP&CC has also been instrumental in the support of the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum. APHF has received direct financial support from AFP&CC, as well as a prominent place in Police Times Magazine and the AFP&CC Newsletter.
