The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund hosted its third annual National Law Enforcement Museum gala fundraiser on Friday, October 12, to honor law enforcement officers and raise money for the National Law Enforcement Museum. This year’s gala was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
Proceeds from the gala will benefit the National Law Enforcement Museum, which is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in early 2015.
Actor Richard Belzer of “Law & Order: SVU” was the master of ceremonies at the gala, which centered around a “reel to real” theme that compared how law enforcement is portrayed in movies and television to real life.
At the gala, Craig Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the museum, announced a $15 million donation from Motorola Solutions Foundation.
“We are grateful for the ongoing support and dedication from the Motorola Solutions Foundation to the museum and the law enforcement community,” Floyd said. “American law enforcement has an important story to tell, and the museum will serve as a much-needed outlet to accomplish that effort. Together, we will honor the sacrifice and commitment of America’s law enforcement and provide an educational resource to the public for years to come.”
