Grand Opening Sponsorships

The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building is dedicated to telling the story of American law enforcement by providing visitors a “walk in the shoes” experience. In October 2018, the Museum will open to the public. To help commemorate this momentous occasion a week of celebratory events will be held.

Unique sponsorship offerings have been developed to maximize exposure throughout the week and to directly engage with the community at the Grand Opening Community Day on Saturday, October 13, 2018.

Help us celebrate this momentous occasion by sponsoring an opening week activity.
