National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund generates increased public support for the law enforcement profession by permanently recording and appropriately commemorating the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers and providing information that will help promote law enforcement safety.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is located in Washington, D.C. and visited by 200,000 people annually. The Memorial honors federal, state and local law enforcers for their dedication and sacrifice, featuring bronze sculptures depicting a series of adult lions protecting its cubs, symbolizing the protective role of law enforcement officers.
In 2000, Congress and President Bill Clinton authorized the establishment of a National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C., paving the way for the nation's largest and most comprehensive museum honoring the duty and sacrifice of America's law enforcement officers. The Museum broke ground in 2010.
