Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Marcia Ferranto

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has been serving as this nation's preeminent organization for honoring the fallen, telling the story of American law enforcement, and making it safer for those who serve. With our beautiful campus in Washington, DC, stretching across E street, the Memorial and the National Law Enforcement Museum have become a center for respect, honor, and remembrance.

It has been more than a year since the Museum doors opened to immersive exhibits and incredible programming that ties together the law enforcement experience with what it is to be part of the American fabric as a citizen, and how our stories are woven together.

After a visitor learns about the history of law enforcement and becomes fully immersed in what it means to be an officer in America, the journey across the street from the Museum to the Memorial is one of deep reflection. One can pay their respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice from a fully immersed and educated standpoint.

It is a new day for our organization, and I am very proud to bring our mission pillars together as the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum. This newsletter, Rose and Shield Insider, is your access to the opportunities, stories, and information that will keep you close to our community.

With respect,

 Marcia Ferranto Sig

This is the behind-the-scenes story of how the 2020 virtual Candlelight Vigil has reached more than 400,000 people.

Facial Recognition: A New Normal Now Available in Replay


Watch Facial Recognition

In April, more than 800 people attended a virtual panel discussion about facial recognition technology. The event kicked off with a special introduction by William J. Bratton, former New York City Police Commissioner, and was followed by expert information regarding the pros and cons of its use, applications during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, normalizing surveillance in public spaces, the need for effective and efficient law enforcement tools in the digital age, ethnic bias and privacy concerns, and legal accountability and oversight.
