The Plains Police Department Special Operations Group recently attended a meeting of the Plains Senior Citizens to discuss what the group does to protect schools, businesses, hospitals and residents in the township. They explained the various techniques being used to protect the community. Each officer is responsible for his own training and the Plains Township commissioners purchased bulletproof vests for them. Some of the participants, from left, are Officer Tim Minnick, Sergeant Ron Dombroski and Officer Dan Lewis. Other participants were Sergeant Binker, Officer Kelly, Officer Asbury, Officer Smith and Lieutenant Lussi.
