National Law Enforcement Museum challenges guests to solve the case for a chance to win $25,000

From now until Oct. 6, 2019 National Law Enforcement Museum visitors – including law enforcement officers – will have a chance to put their crime-solving skills to the test. Those who solve the case have a chance to win $25,000.

“We’d love to see law enforcement participate – maybe even have police departments challenge each other to see who can crack the case first,” said Robyn Small, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) Senior Director of Communications. “It’s a great team activity!”

Upon entering the Museum, visitors will be given a “case file” about the Queen of Diamonds, a criminal whose anonymous crew can only be identified by solving a series of puzzles embedded throughout the Museum’s exhibits. Using critical thinking and detective’s intuition, audiences will seek to uncover the true identities of the Queen and her crew. If a visitor succeeds in identifying all five members of the gang, they’ll be entered in a drawing for the chance to win $25,000, which will be awarded to one detective.

“Crimes (Un)Cased gives us an opportunity to introduce visitors to our Museum’s collection of artifacts in a unique and immersive way,” said NLEOMF CEO Lori Sharpe Day. “It’s a great activity to do with a team of friends or family members, and of course who wouldn’t want the chance to win $25,000?”

The Crimes (Un)Cased immersive experience was developed by the Museum’s marketing agency, U.Group, in conjunction with the Museum’s curatorial team. “It is part of bringing the Museum’s mission to life and enriching the relationship between law enforcement and the community through a fun and engaging experience,” said Chris Lester, Chief Creative Officer, U.Group. “Visitors become detectives themselves, and while immersed in the experience they’ll get to know the amazing stories associated with the artifacts in the Museum.”

Museum visitors are invited to play Crimes (Un)Cased free as a part of regular Museum admission. Once they have completed the activity, they enter their answers in a kiosk.

The Museum hopes to launch new cases for visitors to crack throughout 2020. For more details or to buy tickets to the Museum visit the new website for this immersive experience at www.CrimesUnCased.com.
