Respect. Honor. Remember
As a campus that serves our local Washington, DC, community as well as the nation, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum’s first priority remains the health, safety, and security of our staff and the people that visit us.
As a public health precaution due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), the National Law Enforcement Museum will temporarily close to the public beginning Saturday, March 14, 2020.
Updates will be provided on a week-to-week basis.
