Pride Behind the Badge: The History of LGBTQIA+ in Law Enforcement
An Exhibit Experience and Special Broadcast Program
The National Law Enforcement Museum is launching its new digital exhibit and public program, titled "Pride Behind the Badge: The History of LGBTQIA+ in Law Enforcement," in honor of Pride Month. The exhibit showcases the contributions of LGBTQIA+ officers in law enforcement, aiming to inspire the next generation to prioritize community safety. The program, airing on June 28 at 2 PM ET, delves into the exhibit's themes and highlights the presence of discrimination within the profession. By offering this exhibit and program, our goal is to foster a cohesive voice in law enforcement and promote greater workforce development.
Both the exhibit and program feature individuals who share their experiences as law enforcement professionals, and how they found support within the profession. Through this initiative, viewers will develop a deeper appreciation for their LGBTQIA+ colleagues while gaining awareness of inclusive, effective, and productive practices implemented by various departments.
Looking Back at National Police Week 2023
Last month, a staggering 40,000 members of the law enforcement community gathered in Washington, DC in honor of National Police Week 2023. This sacred assembly served as a tribute to our nation's heroes—those who valiantly serve in the line of duty, those who have retired, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
As we reflect on those we honor, the essence of their service permeates the Memorial. We are grateful to each member of the community who helped to make Police Week possible. View the unforgettable memories in the official Police Week 2023 gallery.
