Spokane Police Department To Show Off Skills At Open House

The Spokane Police Department will demonstrate aspects of its diverse job Saturday during a day-long open house.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the police training center in east Spokane.

The SWAT team will perform live-fire demonstrations, police dogs will “take down” a volunteer posing as a felony suspect, and explosives experts will show off “Elvis,” a remote-controlled robot used to defuse bombs.

Officers from the department’s mounted patrol will be on hand with their horses, and people will be able to sit inside patrol cars.

Various investigative units will have displays, and Chief Terry Mangan will be there to answer questions.

The open house is free.

Because parking at the training center is limited, the public is asked to park at the Spokane Community College lot on East Mission and take free shuttles to the event.
