Members of the public are being invited to attend a special Open Day at Carrick -on-Shannon Garda station today.
The Open Day runs from 12 noon until 4 o' clock this afternoon, and a special hour is being run from 11 to 12 to allow autistic people attend.
People will get a tour at the station, including the cells, and children can also get their fingerprints taken if they want.
The Open Day will also feature horses and dogs with the Garda Mounted unit and Garda Dog Unit both represented, as well as other specialist branches, and emergency services like the fire brigade.
The day is aimed at providing positive engagement within the community as well as allowing people interested in a career in the force to have a chat with some people on the day.
Garda John Morgan from the Community Liaison Unit says he expects the animals, and a hoped for visit from the Garda helicopter, to be among the main attractions.
