Strengthening the Relationship Between Law Enforcement and Communities

The National Law Enforcement Museum is proud to announce its partnership with the Illumination Project. Originated in Charleston, South Carolina, the Illumination Project began as a heartfelt response to the 2015 murders of nine parishioners during a bible study class at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. The Charleston (SC) Police Department wanted to “illuminate” or shine a light on areas of the community where improved relations between citizens and police were needed.

By bringing together a wide range of citizens, community leaders and law enforcement, the Illumination Project has been able to nurture a better understanding between law enforcement and citizens in the communities they serve. “We at the Illumination Project are delighted with this unique opportunity to partner with the National Law Enforcement Museum to build safer and healthier communities,” said Illumination Project President Robert “Jake” Jacobs. “This partnership allows us to build on our work in Charleston, while supporting the Museum’s mission to expand and enrich law enforcement and citizen relationships.”

The Illumination Project is comprised of both law enforcement and community leaders who work together to create healthy communities for all citizens. In a year, the organization held 33 listening sessions and generated more than 1,000 action ideas from police and citizens.

A cornerstone of the Museum’s mission is to help strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve. We’re excited about this partnership and the opportunities ahead to fulfill such a key part of our mission.
