Police Department Opens Its Doors To Public

This week is national peace officers memorial week and to honor that, the Longview Police Department opened its doors to the public Wednesday.   The Open House included a tour of its facilities and several demonstrations. Attendees also listened to officers talk about how the department's speed trailer works.   Plus, they actually got to see a taser gun fired off.

Suzanne Strohschein, one of the attendees, says, "I appreciate them opening up and kind of letting the public see and communicating with us what they do...kind of helps you to have a little, a whole lot more respect for the police.:

There is another tour scheduled Thursday from four to seven at the Longview Police Department on West Cotton Street.
