The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund unveiled plans today to construct the first National Law Enforcement Museum, reports the Washington Examiner. The fund is launching a fundraising campaign for the project.
Fund chairman/CEO Craig Floyd, said that the highlight of the museum will be interactivity. He cited a planned exhibit dubbed “Shoot or Don’t Shoot”–a simulation used by police training courses that teaches trainees what to do in cases where they need to make split-second decisions. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush are honorary co-chairs of the campaign committee. Former U.S. Attorney Generals Edwin Meese, Richard Thornburgh, and John Ashcroft were to attend an announcement event today.
