WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Several children gathered at Wilmington Police Headquarters Thursday for their quarterly Demo Day.

The kids were given the chance to check out the SABLE helicopter, the CSI unit, and motorcycles.  They could also see a prisoner transport unit, K-9 units, and the Segway.

Whether it was the gadgets in the cars, or the officers and their canine partners, the kids found something to peak their interest.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, the event was expanded to include children of all ages so that everyone could attend on the first day of summer vacation.
