Open Up! It’s the Police!

Lakeland SWATThe Lakeland Police Department is inviting everyone to their third annual open house. And you have to love the day: Saturday March 17th. That date would never have worked in my dad’s old Irish neighborhood. But the open house is 10 am to 2 pm, so we should be there with bells on.

The program sounds great. On display will be some equipment from the S.W.A.T. team. I really hope they bring that armored personnel carrier. Some officers from the K-9 unit will be there. Always a fun time for the kids. There is also a mention of a display from the hostage negotiation unit, but I’m not sure that sounds appealing. Maybe I’ll find out otherwise.

Anyway, drop by the Lakeland Police Station on the 17th. Just do it between 10 am and 2 pm. If you’re there at 2 am, don’t call me to bail you out. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Uncle G.
