I normally come to Washington D.C. during National Police Week. It wasn’t open this past May 2019, so I came back to experience this long overdue museum.

Hello Niles, while the National Law Enforcement Museum was open during the 2019 National Police Week in May (it officially opened in October 2018), we're glad you came back to DC to visit!

We're glad you were able to visit the Fallen Officer Kiosks in the Hall of Remembrance to see the panel on Policeman Keen. We hope you were also able to see his name engraved on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial across the street.
