The Greensboro Police Department has donated an out-of-service police car to the Greensboro Children’s Museum (GCM) for use in its “Get Out and Play” interactive exhibit, which features full size automobiles. The police car will join other vehicles, including a fire truck, ambulance, Volvo Truck and Petty Enterprises race car. The newer police car with flashing lights and siren opens at GCM at a ribbon cutting ceremony planned for 11a.m. Friday, September 2.

The fully-outfitted 2011 Crown Victoria replaces a police vehicle that has been on display since 2009 and well loved by the museum’s visitors. The police car’s interior will include interactive features, such as a low audible level siren, air horn, light bar and interior dome light. The display will allow children to get a small glimpse of police work.

GCM staff members wish to extend a tremendous thank you to true community heroes, the Greensboro Police Department.
