The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is preparing to welcome the public to its new museum dedicated to law enforcement history this Saturday.

The new underground museum—located across the street from the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Judiciary Square in Washington, D.C.—features myriad pieces of history from American law enforcement, including Eagle One, the U.S. Park Police helicopter used to rescue five people from the frigid Potomac River when an Air Florida flight crashed into the 14th Street Bridge in 1982.

Executive Director Dave Brant hopes that the museum acts as a platform for dialogue that can strengthen ties between officers and the community, according to NBC News.

“The Museum’s core mission is to introduce visitors to the proud history and many facets of American law enforcement in an experience you won’t find anywhere else,” NLEOMF says on its website.

Our “walk in the shoes” experience lets visitors learn what it’s like to be a law enforcement officer through innovative and engaging exhibits, artifacts and programs. We also seek to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve with thought-provoking programs that promote dialogue on topics of current interest.


The Museum will be closed for the health and safety of our visitors and staff.  While we are all managing in these tough times, we are remaining hopeful and know that we will all get through this by working together.  The museum misses our visitors and members and looks forward to seeing you as soon as it is possible.  Thank you for your continuing support.

We will remember and honor his sacrifice...

It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a Phoenix Police Department Commander.

Commander Greg Carnicle was shot in the line of duty on Sunday March 29 on the scene of a domestic violence call.  Two other officers were also shot during the incident at 40th Drive and Pinnacle Peak. The two officers are expected to recover.

Commander Carnicle was a 31-year veteran of the force, and was just months away from retiring.  During his distinguished career, he held positions throughout the department including the special assignments unit, K9 and he most recently oversaw all evening and weekend patrol operations.

Rest In Peace Commander Carnicle.
