The National Law Enforcement Museum has officially secured the necessary financing to construct and complete our future home on E Street in Washington, DC. We crossed the finish line in late January when we closed on the sale of a number of municipal bonds that will finance the project. The DC Government has issued the building permit and the U.S. Department of the Interior has authorized us to proceed with construction which will commence this month — a major milestone for the museum and our team.
We are excited to be working with Clark Construction, our general contractor, headquartered in neighboring Bethesda, Maryland. Clark is known for their museum experience and has worked on the National Museum of the American Indian, the U.S. Institute of Peace Headquarters & Global Peace Center, and the National Museum of African American History & Culture to name a few.
To keep you updated on the Museum’s progress we will be setting up a webcam to stream the construction process. Check out the next Museum Insider for a link to the camera and in the meantime, please visit www.SupportTheLine.org for more details about the project.
