National Law Enforcement Museum Receives $1 Million Pledge From Panasonic

May 17, 2007  | 

When the National Law Enforcement Museum opens its doors in the nation's capital in 2011, visitors will be able to experience first-hand the day-to-day life of America's law enforcement officers, thanks to a $1 million pledge from Panasonic Computer Solutions Company, manufacturer of durable, reliable Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) announced that Secaucus, NJ-based Panasonic will sponsor “A Day in the Life,” an exhibition within the Museum's “Being an Officer” gallery. Here, visitors will learn about the challenges, dangers, and opportunities involved in patrolling the streets, answering calls for service, and responding to emergencies. Dynamic videos will take visitors through a “day in the life” of officers from the San Francisco Police Department, the Minnesota State Patrol, and the Natchez Trace National Park in Mississippi.

“‘A Day in the Life’ is where the public will learn all about the day-to-day challenges of law enforcement and the unpredictability of going from dull to dangerous in seconds,” says Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the NLEOMF, which is leading the effort to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum. “Through Panasonic's generous sponsorship, we will be able to ensure that this exhibition provides a compelling, exciting, and accurate portrait of how our law enforcement officers work to keep us safe every day of the year,” he adds.

The announcement of the $1 million pledge comes as thousands of law enforcement officers, survivors of those killed in the line of duty and other supporters assemble in Washington, D.C., for National Police Week. Each year, events are held to remember America's fallen law enforcement heroes and pay tribute to the 800,000 officers who continue to serve in communities across the country.
