The New York City Police Museum Presents a New Permanent Exhibit: The Junior Officers Discovery Zone

October 18, 2010 - by CG News Desk

The New York City Police Museum (100 Old Slip at Water & South Sts., 212-480-3100; www.nycpolicemuseum.org) has announced the opening of the Junior Officers Discovery Zone, a new permanent exhibit for families with young children aged 3-10. The exhibition is a collaboration between The New York City Police Museum and The Children's Museum of Manhattan (CMOM).

The Junior Officers Discovery Zone includes:

• The Police Academy - a crime scene observation activity that will challenge children to remember relevant parts of city street scenes
• The Park and Precinct - driving and taking care of a Police car
• Emergency Services Unit - a model vehicle where children can climb in, use the steering wheel and lights, hear radio calls with Police codes (e.g. 1052 for "disturbance" and 1063 for "going to lunch") and see real equipment carried by The Emergency Services Unit

Each area will have interactive and imaginary play experiences for children to understand and identify the job and role of Police Officers in our community. Scroll down for images of the Junior Officers Discovery Zone.

Housed in the historic building that contained the 1st Precinct of the NYPD, the New York City Police Museum gives visitors an insider’s look at the history of the largest police force in the country. Exhibits include vehicles, weapons and uniforms, and an exhibit chronicling the tragic events of September 11th through testimonials and artifacts. Open Mon.-Sat., 10am-5pm. 100 Old Slip at Water & South Sts., 212-480-3100; www.nycpolicemuseum.org.
