American Police Hall of Fame and Museum [FL]

The American Police Hall of Fame and Museum, founded in 1960, is the nation's first national police museum and memorial dedicated to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Through interactive displays, simulators, and artifacts displays, the Museum educates the public about the history and current trends of American law enforcement. The Museum also features a state-of-the-art 24-lane indoor gun range and helicopter rides.

The museum offers a memorial chapel, exhibits on law enforcement, helicopter rides, and periodic special events. The website offers visitor information, an exhibit map, a virtual tour, police history, a calendar of events, and information about the memorial.
