Motorola Museum Site Visit

Washington, DC—Officials from Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) and Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, toured the National Law Enforcement Museum construction site on Friday, May 13, 2016. Representatives received an in-depth look at site demolition, currently underway in the Judiciary Square neighborhood in Washington, DC, directly across the street from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Motorola is the First Founding Partner of the National Law Enforcement Museum. In 2004, the company provided a $3 million Leadership Gift as part of the museum’s “A Matter of Honor Campaign.” In 2012, the company made an additional $15 million gift bringing the total amount of Motorola’s support to $18 million.

"Law enforcement officers who selflessly serve communities across America deserve our thanks and recognition,” said Matt Blakely, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation. “That’s why Motorola Solutions is an enthusiastic supporter of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the National Law Enforcement Museum. For over 60 years, our employees have been committed to law enforcement and the first responders who every day help others in the moments that matter."

Supporting the National Law Enforcement Museum is just part of the commitment by Motorola Solutions and the Motorola Solutions Foundation to the law enforcement community. Since 2007, the foundation has provided more than $11 million in grants to public safety organizations in the U.S.

Construction of the Museum began last month and is estimated to be complete in mid-2018. The Museum will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech interactive exhibits, comprehensive collection of artifacts, extensive resources for research, and diverse educational programming.
