National Law Enforcement Museum

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum, located in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to telling the history of American law enforcement, remembering the fallen and making it safer for those who serve. We show and garner support for the law enforcement profession by permanently recording and appropriately commemorating the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, the only national memorial to fallen officers in the nation’s capital. The adjacent National Law Enforcement Museum tells the story of law enforcement in America through interactive and thought-provoking exhibits and programs. Visit or for more information.
