Recruiting Docents!

The year 2020 is a very special one for the American Police Hall of Fame (APHF)! We began our journey of honoring police officers SIXTY YEARS AGO and are still going strong! This year we would like to begin our very first Docent Program and welcome YOU to join us!! What is a DOCENT? A volunteer educator! Museum docents should have an interest in supporting law enforcement officers, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn.


  • You support our Law Enforcement Officers!  Becoming a docent at the APHF is a wonderful way to support our officers – teaching about the history and various aspects of law enforcement!

  • You love to learn! Docents have the opportunity to learn about the Museum’s collection, special exhibits and history during docent training.  Docents will be giving guided tours and assisting with special events.

  • Giving back to your community!  Docents bridge the gap between law enforcement and our visitors, helping local and global visitors to get excited about supporting these brave men and women!

  • You love to talk!  Not only do docents teach, but they also engage in conversations with visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures about the importance of supporting our officers. 

  • You love to make new friends!  You will become part of an important group of people with similar interests as yourself – supporting officers and encouraging our visitors to do the same.  Make new and lasting friendships by interacting with people that share your interests and participating in the social opportunities available to you through becoming at docent at APHF.

Docents will be a very important part of the Museum family and will give back in so many special ways. If you  are interested in applying or know someone who is interested, please contact Jayme DiGennaro at for information and an application.
