The Story of American Law Enforcement

By Linda Tancs

America’s first museum giving visitors a “walk in the shoes” experience of law enforcement opened late last year in Washington, D.C. Located in Judiciary Square, the National Law Enforcement Museum offers over 20,000 artifacts telling the story of American law enforcement since its beginnings. Seeking to encourage dialog between police and communities, the facility’s exhibits include a training simulator exploring the making of police decisions. The grounds also feature a memorial with the names of more than 21,000 officers who have been killed in the line of duty throughout U.S. history, dating back to the first known death in 1791.
