DuPont Salutes National Law Enforcement at Museum
|National Law Enforcement Museum Entry Pavilions.|
Celebrating the contributions made by police and corrections officers throughout history, the museum will feature hands-on activities, state-of-the-art interactive technology and rotating educational installations exploring the past, present and future of law enforcement. At its heart will be the museum’s Hall of Remembrance, where visitors will find mementos and stories about nearly 19,000 fallen officers. DuPont will sponsor a changing exhibition gallery to focus on topical issues and provide an in-depth examination into milestones throughout the history of law enforcement.
In addition to contributing innovations, services and financial support toward the construction and financing of the museum, DuPont also helped create the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, built and dedicated in 1991. Located across the street from the museum site, the memorial permanently records and commemorates the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers while providing information that will help promote law enforcement safety.
“Throughout DuPont’s history, we have worked to promote the importance of safety and to protect law enforcement and military officers from the hazards they face daily,” said Tom Powell, president – DuPont Protection Technologies. “We are proud to be partnering with the law enforcement community to help build this important landmark, to tell the story of American law enforcement and to honor those who have dedicated their lives to protecting others.”

Founded in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public support for law enforcement by honoring the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement officers, and to promoting officer safety.
