National Law Enforcement Museum
The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building is committed to preserving the history of American law enforcement and sharing the experiences of service and sacrifice for generations to come.
The Museum is working to expand and enrich the relationship shared by law enforcement and the community through educational journeys, immersive exhibitions and insightful, interactive programs that provide a deeper understanding of law enforcement's vital service to our country.
