State Police Historical, Educational & Memorial Center Addition
PSP-HEMC EXPANDS On
Friday, April 17, 2015, the ground breaking ceremony took place at The Pennsylvania State
Police Historical, Educational and Memorial Center (HEMC), which is adjacent to the
Pennsylvania State Police Academy. The new 6,000 sq. ft. addition will provide a modern
learning and educational facility, as well as a display for numerous artifacts of the
history of the Pennsylvania State Police.
This will increase the existing facility by 350 percent. The addition provides for
a donor-funded chapel, more exhibit area, a vehicle display, and a multi-purpose room for
senior citizen education (e.g. personal firearm safety, scams, identity theft, safe
driving) and youth education (respect for law enforcement, careers in law enforcement,
changing public climates), and public use for meeting space rental.
The long awaited Memorial Bricks will be included in the planned expansion project.
