WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 28, 2022) – The National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C., is offering free general admission to all active and retired law enforcement officers every Saturday for the rest of the year, courtesy of FirstNet®, Built with AT&T.
“The National Law Enforcement Museum exists to share the vibrant story of American law enforcement,” said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. “This collaboration with AT&T helps us continue that mission by making the museum more accessible to our nation’s law enforcement heroes.”
The Museum houses 300 years of American law enforcement history, including several immersive and interactive experiences. The latest temporary exhibit, Post-9/11: The Evolution of American Law Enforcement, allows visitors to learn more about the significant changes to U.S. law enforcement in the aftermath of 9/11, including coming together with other agencies, the private sector, and the general public to help make us all safer.
FirstNet is built with AT&T in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority, an independent agency within the federal government. It is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America’s first responders and the extended public safety community.
“This exhibit honors the first responders who sacrificed their lives and showed our country the importance of public safety. We are honored to be a part of this remembrance,” said Jason Porter, President, Public Sector and FirstNet, AT&T. “This museum highlights the importance of duty, sacrifice and leadership among first responders. We look forward to continuing to aid in this important mission and providing support to the current law enforcement community.”
Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience the L3Harris PatrolSim™, the only patrol driving simulator in the country not housed in a police training academy, and the Decision-Making Training Simulator, a virtual experience showcasing the quick decisions that must be made daily by law enforcement.
The generous donation provided by AT&T will cover the cost of admission for all active and retired law enforcement officers every Saturday in 2022.
The National Law Enforcement Museum is located at 444 E Street, NW, in Washington, D.C. Visit https://nleomf.org/museum/admission/ or the Ticket Desk to secure your tickets.
