National Law Enforcement Museum Education Programs on the Go
Sunday, October 16, was a beautiful day to be outside in the District. Luckily, Museum staff could enjoy the weather while supporting a great cause! Staff members hosted a Museum tent at the family festival portion of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s inaugural Ride and Run to Remember fundraising event, which featured bicycle rides, a 5K run, and a family festival. The Museum tent offered three activities for participants and their families. “Women in Law Enforcement” challenged participants to place various photos of women in law enforcement throughout history in the Museum’s collection into correct chronological order. Another activity invited participants to explore what a beat cop carries on his or her duty belt and to create their own (much lighter!) paper version. The third activity offered an opportunity to make a child ID card, which enticed adults and children alike to stop by our tent.
