WASHINGTON (Circa) — A new museum dedicated to the history of law enforcement in America will open to the public on Oct. 13 in Washington D.C.
The Law Enforcement Museum, located at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building at Judiciary Square, is the first of its kind in the country.
The goal of the museum is to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and communities they serve.
There are over 20,000 artifacts on display, including biker vests from undercover special agents with a notorious motorcycle gang, to a U.S. Park Police Eagle One helicopter used to rescue airplane crash survivors from the Potomac River.
Tours like “Walking the Beat” and “Talking with the Curator” will let visitors explore the job of a patrol officer throughout history.
