RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A project honoring public safety personnel killed in the line of the duty has received a $50,000 donation.

 

Gov. Bob McDonnell announced the contribution Tuesday. The money comes from excess private funds raised to support the recent National Governor's Association conference in Williamsburg.

 

The Virginia Public Safety Foundation plans to raise $2 million to pay for construction of the Commonwealth Public Safety Memorial. The memorial will be built at Capitol Square in Richmond.

 

McDonnell challenged business leaders in Virginia to contribute to the project.
