Gifts reflect companies' ties to law enforcement

WASHINGTON — The list of the most generous donors to the planned $80 million National Law Enforcement Museum is packed with corporate powerhouses: Motorola, DuPont, Verizon and Panasonic, among others.
The companies or their related foundations have poured millions of dollars into developing the new attraction, set to open here in late 2013. For their generosity — Motorola and DuPont each contributed at least $3 million — museum officials have bestowed glowing honorary titles on the companies and the right to affix their names on exhibits throughout the building.
