Don’t Just See It. Experience It.

At the National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building, visitors won’t just see what it’s like to be in law enforcement — they’ll experience it. We’re committed to connecting visitors to all parts of American law enforcement — past, present, and future — through exciting exhibits that put you right in the shoes of officers.


The Museum is designed with hands-on exhibits that give you the ultimate law enforcement experience. Take the Case gives visitors the critical thinking and forensic science skills law enforcement uses to find evidence, analyze clues, and ultimately crack the case.

To Serve and Protect gives an eye-opening look at key law enforcement initiatives that go far beyond the everyday responsibilities you might normally expect from officers.


We want visitors to know exactly what it feels like to be in law enforcement. 911 Emergency Ops throws you into some of law enforcement’s most stressful situations as you take on the critical role of an emergency dispatcher.

Think you have the physical and mental capacity to make it in law enforcement? The Training Simulator will bring you face to face with some of law enforcement’s most threatening and stressful decision-making situations.


The Museum prides itself on teaching through real-life experience. Officers’ Stories features some of the most memorable stories about life on the job, told by the officers themselves.

No two days on the job are the same. Being an Officer allows you to explore both the “everyday” activities of real officers as well as the highly specialized work of K-9, SWAT, Bomb Squad, and Undercover and Surveillance units.
