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.
Museum also announces partnership with national community organization to promote stronger relationship between law enforcement and communities.
Spring is finally here. As I watch the crowds of tourists descend on Washington, DC, for spring break and our beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival, I continue to get more excited about what’s just around the corner.
As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we also take time to pay homage to Elizabeth Coffal Robinson and Betty Blankenship.
