Thin Blue Line


Thin Blue Line

Be immortalized in the National Law Enforcement Museum

Inscriptions for gifts made after July 1, 2017 will be added, incrementally, after the opening of the Museum as inscription panels are filled. Our staff will contact you with updates on when your inscription will become a part of the Museum.

Spaces are limited and we have been able to extend this offer till spaces are full.

You have an opportunity to be part of a symbolic Thin Blue Line in the National Law Enforcement Museum which is currently under construction in Washington, DC. As visitors enter the Museum and proceed down to the mezzanine level overlooking the exhibit floor, they will be standing on a stunning glass bridge that contains a Thin Blue Line of special inscriptions from donors who have made a $1,000 Thin Blue Line gift.

When you make a Thin Blue Line donation, your special inscription will secure your legacy in the Museum as part of this line. Only a limited number of spaces remaining, so act today by making a donation to receive this special recognition before they are all sold. Your designated name will be engraved and visible in perpetuity for every visitor to see when they enter the Museum.

  • Line begins on the glass railings that extend from the elevator in the east pavilion, across the bridge and terminates by the elevator in the west pavilion

  • Opportunity to be part of the limited number of names on the Thin Blue Line

  • Names can be read from the glass bridge, but from the exhibit floor below they will appear as a continuous ‘Thin Blue Line’

  • A donor kiosk will contain a searchable listing and locations of all the names inscribed

  • Your special inscription is limited to 40 characters (letters and number only) including spaces

  • Memorial Fund staff will contact you once your Thin Blue Line gift is made for your inscription
