Jackson Tribute Provides Money for LAPD Project

The people who staged Michael Jackson's memorial service have donated $90,000 to build a tribute to fallen Los Angeles police officers.

Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns Staples Center in Los
Angeles, donated money received from the sale of 18 luxury suites
to guests at the July 7 Jackson memorial.

The company says the decision to donate the money was made
before a dispute developed over city funds spent to provide
security and other services during the memorial.

Karen Wagener, president of the Los Angeles Police Foundation,
says AEG hand-delivered a check for $90,000 to the nonprofit group
on Thursday.

Wagener says it will be used to help fund a $620,000 memorial -
a brass wall expected to be unveiled in September at the site of a
new downtown police headquarters.
