National Law Enforcement Museum Breaks Ground in Washington, DC

Dignitaries at the ceremony included Attorney General Eric Holder and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer

Our nation’s police officers take great risks, and make extraordinary sacrifices, in order to keep America’s streets safe. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice. This week’s groundbreaking of the National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC formally kicked off an important project to help our citizens honor the fallen, as well as the tireless contributions of everyone who wears a badge.

Scheduled to open in late 2013, the 55,000-square-foot institution will be a world-class experiential Museum with high-tech interactive exhibitions, including a vast collection of law enforcement artifacts and dedicated spaces for research and education. It was conceptualized by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a private non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public support for law enforcement by honoring the service and sacrifice of America’s law enforcement officers; and to promoting officer safety.

Every day, Panasonic Solutions Company works closely with thousands of police departments around the country, and the dedication of law enforcement officials has continually inspired us. We believe the National Law Enforcement Museum is a meaningful tribute to their service, and have donated $1 million to assist with its construction.

It has been an honor to partner with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and help make the National Law Enforcement Museum a reality. I can’t wait for the Grand Opening.
