WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Kids in our area are learning firsthand what it takes to be a police officer. They got the chance to climb in the Sable Helicopter, watch K-9 training and even meet some horses.

Officers say it teaches kids not to be scared of police officers while letting them have fun at the same time.

Leslie Irving with the Wilmington Police Department says, "They (kids) think it's really neat. They love the horses. They love the K-9s, and the different things like the police cars, the helicopters, and getting on top of the motorcycles."

This was the last Demo Day of 2013.
