ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The National Law Enforcement Museum will open to the public on October 13 in Washington D.C. and MAGLITE® representatives and San Bernardino County Sheriff Lieutenant Jim Considine will be in attendance to experience this momentous occasion.
Considine was severely wounded while on duty in a 1997 shooting. A bullet from an AK-47 rifle was deflected from a “center-mass” chest wound by the MAGLITE® flashlight the Sheriff was carrying. A video encompassing Considine’s story is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV0SL-53Ekc
Mag Instrument, the manufacturer of the MAGLITE flashlight, is one of the earliest supporters of the National Law Enforcement Museum. The MAGLITE® brand will have items displayed in the Museum including the flashlight that saved the life of Jim Considine, a San Bernardino County Sheriff when his full sized rechargeable MAGLITE® flashlight blocked an AK-47 bullet and kept working.
“That Maglite saved my life,” said Considine. “I am looking forward to being at the opening of the Museum and I thank Maglite for making that happen.”
The MAGLITE® brand has a strong connection with law enforcement who was the earliest large scale adopters of MAGLITE® flashlights which are known for their quality and toughness.
“Our law enforcement officers risk their lives every day to keep us safe,” said Anthony Maglica. “This museum is a worthy addition to the monuments and museums in Washington D.C. to show visitors just how difficult and dangerous a job these individuals do for all of us every day.”
