In 2020, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum established Police Weekend.
During Police Weekend 2021, NLEOMF holds the permit for all events taking place at the Memorial. If you wish to hold a ceremony or event at the Memorial from October 11 to October 17, 2021, please complete the form below.
Every year in October, the NLEMM hosts special activities to honor law enforcement such as the iconic Run for the Badge 5K and complimentary Family Fun day at the Museum.
This year, due to the pandemic, the Candlelight Vigil, which usually takes place on May 13th, will occur on Thursday, October 14th at 6:00 pm on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Other events and programs sponsored by the Police Unity Tour, C.O.P.S. and F.O.P., which also happen in May, will take place from October 13 to October 17, 2021. However, the Run for the Badge has been moved to Saturday, October 9, 2021, to accommodate the other events taking place this year. To learn more about the Run for the Badge 5K, click here.
The Museum will be open every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Come check out the new driving simulator. See what it is like driving a police car at high speed to catch a criminal. You also don’t want to miss the first curated exhibit at the Museum, “Post 9/11: The Evolution of American Law Enforcement.” To buy tickets to the Museum, click here.
Destination Zero Conference and Awards Ceremony
Finally, two special activities have been added this year. They are the esteemed Destination Zero Conference, and the Destination Zero Awards Ceremony. Both are planned for Friday, October 15, and will be livestreamed on NLEMM’s social media platforms. The in-person conference and awards ceremony are invite-only.
