The National Law Enforcement Museum, which currently is under construction in Washington, D.C., and planned to open in 2015, has received a $15 million contribution from Motorola Solutions, Inc. and the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions.
The funding provided by Motorola Solutions will help support the museum, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through interactive exhibits, historical artifacts, research and diverse educational programming. The contribution brings the total to $18 million that Motorola Solutions and the Motorola Solutions Foundation have provided to support the museum’s public education effort.
“We are all indebted to the bravery and sacrifice of those who wear the uniform and protect our communities,” said Greg Brown, Chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions. “This contribution reinforces our commitment to them by ensuring the National Law Enforcement Museum has access to the educational tools that are needed to help the millions of visitors that are expected from around the world get a better understanding of the challenges of modern-day law enforcement.”
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.
