To complement its newest exhibit, CSI: The Experience, Exploration Place will host a public event with various law enforcement agencies to show how animals are used in law enforcement.
The Animals in Law Enforcement event begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 25 at Exploration Place until 4 p.m. and continues on Sunday, June 26, until 3 p.m.
Watch as trained Sheriff’s department dog finds evidence, see a demonstration of how Emergency Management dogs are trained, view the horses in the Wichita Police Department Mounted Unit, and learn how the Department of Wildlife and Parks tracks and detects poachers.
Some of the demonstrations will be held outdoors, and those are free and open to the public. Other presentations will be inside the Kemper Creative Learning Studio or the Grand Hall inside Exploration Place and are included with regular museum admission.
