Some youngsters got a behind the scenes look at the Wilmington Police Department Thursday.

Police officers spent the morning explaining some of the ins-and-outs of being a police officer.

Plenty of police vehicles were open to the public including Segways and police cars. The kids were able to try out some of the equipment and learned a few lessons about solving crimes.

The SABLE helicopter seemed to get the most attention from the kids. When it was time for the police helicopter to take off, it had everyone’s attention.

“What I learned about it is this clutch and what it does. Some of these might be cut-off for the guns that used to be there. This helicopter used to be a military helicopter and now it’s police,” said Phoenix Gregory.

Police officers say demonstration day is a great way to interact with the community and improve relationships.
