Many of the volunteers who have been working on this project will gather at the Red Brick Courthouse at 11:00 AM on Friday September 16, 2016 for a tour of the museum space and a meet and greet with representatives from Peerless Rockville and the Montgomery County Historical Society. Afterwards some of us will have lunch at several of the near-by restaurants. The public is invited and we hope that we will be joined by present or former officers and employees of every law enforcement agency that has served the citizens of and visitors to Montgomery County.
The museum will be located in the historic Red Brick Courthouse, 29 Courthouse Square, Rockville, Maryland. The primary display area will be in Room 105 which was the Sheriff's office and the location of the first office of the Montgomery County Police Department. Additional displays will be placed in the main hallway between Room 105 and the offices of Peerless Rockville.

"Each of us is blessed with a gift that we can use to make this project a success. Some have particular skills, others simply have time on their hands and a need to do something. You do not have to be in Rockville or a member of MCPAA to participate - just have an interest."
We anticipate that sometime in the near future there will be various social media accounts for our museum. Links to those accounts will appear here.
