PGPD's Special Operations Division Holds Open House

The Prince George's County Police Department's Special Operations Division is hosting "SOD Day" for members of the Citizens Advisory Councils representing the six police districts.  Guests are invited to meet and greet members of SOD and get a firsthand look at the many tools and other equipment used by the Special Operations Division.  SOD is home to eight dedicated sections which house specially trained personnel and equipment.  The sections include the Aviation, Motors, K-9, Tactical, Traffic, Marine, Conflict Negotiations and Special Services Sections.

Guests will have an opportunity to try on the department's impaired vision goggles which simulate varying levels of intoxication.  Participants can then run through a battery of tests to prove the dangers of drinking then getting behind the wheel.  Members of the media are welcome to attend "SOD Day" to experience these educational tools firsthand during this busy summer driving season.
