The Sherborn Police Association will be hosting their first open house of the newly renovated Sherborn Police Department this weekend.
Last year a pipe burst in the police station causing severe flooding and water damage to the building. The department would like to show off the improvements made to the station which includes their new communications center.
The event will include several activities such as behind the scenes guided tours of the station, demonstrations with police cruisers, a look inside one of State Police's armored vehicles called a Bearcat, a meet and greet with some of the dogs from the State Police K-9 unit, medical demonstrations with dummies and to top it all off Police Chief Richard Thompson will be voluntarily tased by 50,000 volts of electricity from one of the department's tasers at the end of the day.
Sherborn's Finest will also be serving up hamburgers and hot dogs as well as other refreshments.
The department is seeking a $25 donation from those who attend. The money goes towards funding several programs sponsored by the station including an annual scholarship at D-S High School, D.A.R.E. shirts and certificates, their annual senior Thanksgiving dinner and other initiatives in the community.
The event will take place on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Sherborn Police Department.
