Office of Special Investigations"Our investigative team is made up entirely of off-duty, retired and former federal, state and local law enforcement officers, from all over the United States, so we understand the importance of this Museum to law enforcement and the community as a whole,” said D. Michael Kruggel, Founder and CEO of Office of Special Investigations, LLC.  “We are proud to be able to give back to a cause that is so close to the hearts of everyone in our organization.”

We are proud to have his company join in his passion for the Memorial Fund and our mission.” 

Added Mr. Floyd, “In addition to his monetary contribution, Mike continues to volunteer his personal time to the Memorial Fund during the past several National Police Weeks. This year he even brought his teenage son, Jason Kruggel, along to experience National Police Week and introduce him to the Memorial Fund personally.  We are truly grateful to have so many outstanding individual and corporate partners, and we are honored to have Office of Special Investigations, LLC join the ranks to help make this Museum a reality."

Authorized by Congress in the year 2000, the National Law Enforcement Museum is a 55,000 square foot, mostly underground museum to be located in Judiciary Square, adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The Museum will feature high-tech, interactive exhibitions, historical and contemporary artifacts, extensive educational programming and a research center. The project is being led by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a non-profit organization that honors and commemorates the service and sacrifice of law enforcement in the United States.

The privately funded Museum has launched an $80 million capital campaign, with more than $40 million raised to date. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as co-chairs of the Museum’s National Honorary Campaign Committee, which also includes seven former Attorneys General of the United States, as well as other former government officials and celebrities.
