ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Police in DeKalb County hosted a community meet and greet at Northlake Mall.

The event gave residents a chance to see the tools and equipment officers use in crime fighting like helicopters and motorcycles.

They also learned ways to keep themselves and their families safe.

"This gives us an opportunity to share with the community at large a lot of the latest equipment in technology we've acquired over the last several months, and we've got some great crime-fighting technology equipment here," said DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander.

Firefighters were also on hand for Saturday's event.

They gave families a tour of their fire engines and explained how they stay safe in their protective suits.
