Former Montgomery County police chief Charles Moose is returning to the Washington area to help mark the 10th anniversary of the sniper attacks, according to the Associated Press.
For three weeks in Octover of 2002, random shootings in the District, Maryland and Virginia terrorized the region. Ten people were killed. John Allen Muhammed and Lee Boyd Malvo were later convicted.
Today, the National Law Enforcement Museum is convening police officers to discuss the case. Moose will participate, as will Charles Dean, chief of police in Prince William County, Va., and retired Maryland State Police Lt. David Reichenbaugh, according to AP.
Moose served as the public face of a multi-agency task force during the shooting spree. In 2003, he resigned as chief amid criticism for writing a book about the case that made him famous.
A slate of new legislation has received an endorsement by the Virginia State Crime Commission that they say would give law enforcement more tools to investigate and prosecute child abuse.
