Authorized by Congress in 2000, the three-story, 57,000 square-foot National Law Enforcement Museum will be a mostly underground museum located adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.'s Judiciary Square. The Museum will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech interactive exhibits, historical and contemporary artifact collections, a dedicated space for research, and diverse educational programming.
Behind the Blue Line will take FEDagent readers behind the scenes of the Museum as it is being constructed. Read updates on the Museum's construction, interviews with the Museum's architect and learn more about the engaging exhibits that will be featured in the Museum.
The Museum is an initiative of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1984, dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of America's law enforcement officers and to promoting officer safety.
