Punishment: The Consequence of Crime

Hollywood often glamorizes the criminal, portraying a world where the casino heist is easy and avoiding capture even easier. The truth of the matter is that crime doesn't pay, and the NMCP showcases that harsh reality through its full-scale model police station. From a booking room, to mug shots and a lie detector test, to the cold iron bars and claustrophobia of a jail cell, the NMCP presents first-hand the severity involved when criminals get caught. This gallery also features the ultimate implements

of punishment including a guillotine, gas chamber, and electric chair.
