Saying “thank you” means so much. Grand Opening guests will be encouraged to sign a postcard of appreciation as a symbolic “thank you” to law enforcement across the country. After the Museum’s grand opening, a selection of these postcards will be displayed in the Museum for visitors to see
or distributed to a specific department designated by a visitor or shared with departments across the country.
Crime scenes can be some of the most complex environments investigators deal with daily. Creating their own crime scene with Legos, visitors will have to make sure there is evidence for the investigators to collect while being as creative as possible with their crimes scenes. Guests of all ages will love diving into the fun of creating their own world with Legos.
Sitting around a table drinking coffee happens in homes; restaurants, offices, and police stations across the country every day. Coffee Talk encourages visitors to have a free cup of joe and engage with law enforcement officers in organic conversations, reinforcing a sense of community and understanding.
The uniform, the gear, the stance … all can be scary to a child. This activity allows visitors to dress up in law enforcement related props and pieces while learning about the different elements of a police officers’ uniform. Police Officers will also be present to talk with visitors about the uniform. Photo booths will be available to capture the moment….who knows one day Little Johnny or Sally may decide on a career of serving and protecting.
Fingerprints are a unique mark, crime scene investigators and law enforcement professionals count on them to identify criminals. A number of fun, interactive and informative activities will teach visitors how fingerprints are lifted from a crime scene and how to identify their own prints by creating a 10-print card. Guests of all ages will enjoy delving into this part of forensic science.
Canine officers perform astonishing and heroic duties. These highly-trained animals work closely with human partners to search for drugs, explosives, and humans. The first police canine corps was established in 1907 and today there are more than 10,000 K9 officers working in law enforcement agencies across the country. Guests will get to meet K9 officers and their handlers.
An age-old tool for soliciting help from citizens, “Wanted” posters have hung in public spaces and proven to be important to law enforcement searching for suspects. Our Wanted Caricatures will be a fun activity, giving visitors an opportunity to be “wanted” by law enforcement….
A tool perhaps most synonymous with law enforcement is the patrol car. Driving a patrol car isn’t like driving the family sedan and this experience will give visitors a sense of what the inside of squad car is really like.
Visitors will get to explore the different patches sent to the Museum over the years and use them as inspiration to create their own patch. We are certain this area will be a hit as the creative juices will be flowing as guests create a patch to represent their personal interest, family, school or community.
If you’d like to disguise your appearance, let the face painting artists help you.
Law enforcement professionals use a lot of interesting technology to create safe public spaces, solve crimes, or conduct other activities related to enforcing laws. Our Demonstration Areas will provide sponsors an opportunity to demonstrate how their technology and tools are used in modern day law enforcement. Contact Development for pricing.
