Berlin (dpa/bb) – After a two-year Corona break, the Berlin police have opened their doors again and given thousands of visitors a look behind the scenes. According to a police spokesman, around 17,000 people came to the Ruhleben police compound in Spandau by Sunday afternoon. Up to 30,000 guests were expected, as Berlin’s governing mayor Franziska Giffey announced on Instagram on Sunday. Together with interior senator Iris Spranger (both SPD), police chief Barbara Slowik and police vice president Marco Langner, she also got an idea of the place, wrote Giffey.
The traditional police open day was canceled twice due to the corona pandemic. Now the police informed young and old guests about their work again. Visitors could get advice on protection against burglars and car thieves, computer hackers and prevention of drug abuse.
Various police vehicles were presented. In addition, a demonstration of the special task force (SEK) was planned. The Technical Task Force team wanted to simulate a high-altitude rescue and use police dogs to demonstrate their skills.
