“We are excited to have partnered with the Nashville Predators," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at The Bridgestone Arena to honor our nation’s law enforcement officers, while enjoying a fun night of hockey, is sure to be a great occasion—and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. A special thanks to the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police for their support in assisting us on this special night.”

The Memorial Fund is spearheading the efforts to build the privately-funded National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research, and education. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as Honorary 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, including Honorary Chairman Clint Eastwood.
