Each video tribute is about five minutes long and will be housed in the National Law Enforcement Museum, accessible online and in person when the museum’s doors open in 2015. It will be a mostly underground institution located adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.’s Judiciary Square. It will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech, interactive exhibits, comprehensive collection of historical and contemporary artifacts, extensive resources for research, and diverse educational programming.
Over the past decade, about 160 law enforcement officers have been killed annually in the line of duty. For more information about the National Law Enforcement Museum, visit www.LawEnforcementMuseum.org.
