Vincent D'Onofrio talks cops at Museum Event


On Thursday morning, near a rain-drenched Judiciary Square, a small group of people gathered under a white canopy to break ground on the newest museum to join Washington's venerable collection.

The National Law Enforcement Museum will be opened in 2013 and will house the most comprehensive collection of law enforcement artifacts in the country.

"With groundbreaking, we are taking a historic step in realizing our mission to tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research and education," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial fund, who braced the elements alongside House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to put shovel to dirt.

On Thursday evening, with the massive ceiling of the National Building Museum protecting guests from the elements, a black-tie gala marked the groundbreaking. Hundreds of officers in Class A uniform mingled among select museum artifacts on display - including a line-up of classic police cars that flanked the gala entrance.

'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' star Vincent D'Onofrio — who made his name playing Gomer Pyle in the movie 'Full Metal Jacket' before taking on the role of enigmatic detective Bobby Goren in the NBC series—flew into town for the event from New York. He told POLITICO that meeting real life police officers over the years had shown him that the fictionalization of law enforcement was a far cry from reality.

Doesn't matter if I watch this here or at the Politico site, there's no sound (?)....although I'll happily stick my nose on my computer screen to 'lip read' ;0)
