In honor of National Police Week, the Amherst Police Department will once again host an "Open House" on Saturday, May 21, 2011.
The Amherst Police Department will open its doors from 10 am to 2 pm on this day. The event is free, and there is no registration required to attend.
Amherst Police Officers from the Uniformed Patrol Division and the Detective Bureau will give tours of the station, display some of the equipment that the Officers use, and they will explain the mission of the Amherst Police Department as well. Free refreshments (coffee, pastries) will also be available.
Officers will also be on-hand to enroll children in the “Kid Care” identification program. Members of the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office will be there as well to use an iris scanner to take digital photographs of your children’s eyes.
