The Portland Police Bureau is inviting the community to come celebrate its new Training Complex. On Saturday, September 20, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Bureau will host a community-wide open house.
Community members can tour the facility and visit with Bureau members as well as meet members of the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), K-9 Unit and Air Support Unit, and see the tools they use to keep the community safe. Kids can meet McGruff the Crime Dog, have their fingerprints taken by the members of the Forensics Evidence Division, and see how the Explosive Disposal Unit's robot works. Visitors can also participate in the Bureau's obstacle course and receive crime prevention information or hear about Neighborhood Watch Programs from Crime Prevention Specialists at the Office
