That day, there will be two opportunities to celebrate the Museum’s groundbreaking:
* A Groundbreaking Ceremony at 11:00 am at the future site of the National Law Enforcement Museum.
* A Black-Tie Gala that evening at the National Building Museum, adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and the Museum site.
When the Museum opens in late 2013, there will be, for the first time, a high-tech, interactive, world-class museum in our nation’s capital dedicated to telling the story of law enforcement in America. The mission of the National Law Enforcement Museum is to tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research and education. The Museum dynamically engages the broadest possible audience in this story in an effort to build mutual respect and foster cooperation between the public and the law enforcement profession. By doing so, the Museum contributes to a safer society and serves to uphold the democratic ideals of the U.S. Constitution.
