DeKalb Police display 'meat' of their force for shoppers at Stonecrest Mall

Posted: Updated:

Several departments from the DeKalb County Police Department rolled out some of their most impressive gear to display for shoppers at Stonecrest Mall in Lithonia, Saturday morning.

Officers from the Bomb Squad unit, SWAT unit, helicopter division and other departments spent the morning and afternoon greeting visitors in the parking lot. A bomb squad robot, the SWAT tank and the county helicopter were parked and on display.

"This is the meat of our arsenal, you're looking at it," said Lt. Greg Ivanov. "The whole idea is to get out there and let the people know, this is your police department, this is the equipment, these are the resources we have in our arsenal to make this place safer, make the citizens of DeKalb County safer."
