Mission Statement

Our facility is dedicated to the following goals: -- Recognize the noteworthy contributions of American law enforcement professionals; -- Posthumously honor the lives of officers who have died in the line of duty; -- Support and administer meaningful programs for the fallen law enforcement officer's surviving families and for the families of officers disabled in the line of duty; -- Develop meaningful educational programs offering young people a realistic perspective of 21st Century law enforcement and the varied STEM disciplines that play a critical role in crime scene investigation; -- Create a meaningful dialog between our civilian and Law Enforcement sectors while enriching the public awareness of and appreciation for the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers and their families; -- Provide an interactive and compelling museum experience for all who visit.

Description

The American Police Hall of Fame & Museum was founded in 1960 as a way to honor fallen officers and to preserve the individual stories and the collective history of American law enforcement. The facility moved from Miami to Titusville, FL in 2003 and occupies a 50,000 sq ft building, with its chartering organization, The National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP) and a sister organization, The American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens (AFP&CC). Each organization has a different focus related to law enforcement, although all support each other. The Museum/Memorial focuses on education, preservation and commemoration of those who have paid the ultimate price. NACOP serves law enforcement leaders as well as providing funds for canine (K9) units for agencies nationwide (to date, we have invested almost $1 million in canine training and placement). NACOP also manages the Family Fund for Paralyzed & Disabled Officers. AFP&CC supports the museum and manages the Police Family Survivors Fund, providing financial support and resources to the families of fallen officers. All three organizations support the annual Police Week activities and memorial service at the facility.
