The Museum, through interactive displays, simulators and nearly 11,000 artifacts, educates the public about the history and current trends in 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 9,000 officers who were killed in the line of duty. Their names are permanently etched on the Memorial’s walls. Names are added to the wall once a year prior to Law Enforcement Memorial Day.
During Police Week, we host thousands of police officers, family survivors and dignitaries. Our annual memorial service is a somber reminder that every 57 hours somewhere in the United States a police officer is killed in the line of duty .
Visit the museum and explore a collection of historic and futuristic police cars. Or you can have your picture taken in a replica electric chair or behind the bars of a realistic prison cell. You can find out how lane enforcement agencies do their forensic investigations and how crime scenes are analyzed.
But we’re not JUST about museum exhibits and memorial walls… we support law enforcement in ways that most museum-type facilities do not. We offer compassionate programs for law enforcement families, yearly birthday and Holiday gifts for children, scholarships, summer camp funds and so much more.
