The AOS put on a live demonstration as part of last year's open day.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at policing next month as Rotorua and Tauranga Police stations open their doors to the public.
The day is part of nationwide series of events where police stations throughout the country will also be open to public.
Rotorua and Tauranga police stations will host their open days on Sunday March 11.
Bay of Plenty District Commander, Superintendent Andy McGregor says the open days are an opportunity for police to connect with their local communities and for people to see what a career in police might look like.
“There will be a number of activities on display during the day to provide members of the public and anyone wanting to join the police with a real insight into the job we do.
“We'll have displays from our Armed Offenders squad, police dog teams and we'll have staff there from our specialist teams including road policing, youth and CIB.
“We'll also have staff on hand at both events who can talk to and provide advice and information to anyone considering policing as a career.
“Bay of Plenty District wants great people to join the police to help keep this fantastic community safe.
“Our staff are looking forward to welcoming everyone on the day and to give a real hands on view of the different aspects of Policing,” says Andy.
