Hometown Hero Day at Grayson Stadium

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Chatham Metro Police Department partnered with the Savannah Sand Gnats and other law enforcement for Hometown Hero Day at Grayson Stadium on Saturday.

The public was able to get up close and personal to some special ops vehicles, including helicopters and a SWAT BearCat.

There were numerous displays set up by Savannah Chatham Metro, CrimeStoppers, U.S. Coast Guard, Garden City Police, and Georgia State Patrol, to name a few.

"It just brings the community, as well as police agencies and Fire EMS, and some military agencies together, breaks down the barriers that we tend to have when we deal with people in the public, so this way they get to actually interact with us, see where we can help them, and see all the cool toys that we have, and get to look around at them," said APO, Jeff Cotter.

The day was complete with games, a bouncy house, face painting, and free food.

Everyone who attended scored free tickets to Saturday's Sand Gnats Game.
