National Bulletin Board: Post Ideas for Community and Law Enforcement Relations
The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum is deeply concerned about current events around the country. We care about diversity, fairness, respect, honor, and justice, and we are uniquely positioned to bring Congress, law enforcement, and civic groups together and set the table for progressive, solution-based discussions. We are seeking to learn about programs that are already making a positive impact in your community, as well as new ideas you have for initiatives that will bring together law enforcement and the communities they serve. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum will regularly collect the programs and ideas you post to shape our programming, and we will share the greatest ideas with law enforcement departments and agencies, government leaders, civic leaders, and the general public.

Please join us for a presentation of the preliminary numbers of US law enforcement fatalities from January - June 2020 as recorded by the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum. Reviewing and discussing this data will be a panel of law enforcement and officer safety and wellness experts including a pair of Destination Zero National Officer Safety and Wellness winners, a medical doctor discussing physical health and well-being, and a psychologist addressing mental health issues in policing. This live and interactive panel will discuss successful and innovative strategies to reduce line-of-duty deaths and improve officer safety and wellness.
