City officers plan to host a community police event for youngsters Friday at the McDonald’s Restaurant on the 1000 block of McKinley Parkway in South Buffalo.

There will demonstrations by the SWAT Team, tours of their vehicles, additional demonstrations by K-9 Unit officers and their four-legged companions, and the Erie County Sheriff’s helicopter will be landing so that children can get an up-close view of the aircraft.

The event begins at 11 a.m. and continues to 4 p.m., Lt. Steven Nichols said, adding, “This is a great way to get to know your community police officers.”
