The NLEOM Thin Blue Line

February 28, 2017

(Washington DC)  The construction of the new National Law Enforcement Officer Museum is well underway. For those who may not have already contributed; there’s still time and a few remaining opportunities to immortalize a law enforcement officer via the Thin Blue Line donation/inscription program. This can be in honor of your law enforcement service or that of a friend or loved one…

The museum is being constructed in Washington, D.C. across the street from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. It will be a place where all Americans can honor, remember and learn about the hardworking heroes who have contributed so much to our country… Visitors will enter the museum via a spectacular glass bridge that will have name & affiliation inscriptions in honor of those who served in the Thin Blue Line.

There are still a limited number of spaces remaining. This is a great opportunity to honor, in perpetuity, your service or that of a friend or loved one, while at the same time contributing to a worthy national law enforcement memorial.

Hurry, due to the time needed for fabrication of the bridge, the deadline for inscriptions is this February 28, 2017.

HAPCOA contributed an inscribed park bench that will appear within the Museum when it opens.  Also HAPCOA supports the National Police Week Candlelight Vigil each year.
