U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will take part in a ceremonial ground breaking today for Washington's newest museum, the National Law Enforcement Museum, which is slated to open in 2013.
Today's ceremony comes two years later than planned. Organizers say fundraising and design approvals have taken longer than expected.
The project is slated for downtown D.C., in a spot among the city's courthouses, next to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
Museum chairman Craig Floyd says the museum will have a number of attractions.
"Visitors will assume the role of a police dispatcher," Floyd says.
The museum will cost approximately $80 million to build--Floyd says his group has already raised about of half of that.
