An invitation to families to visit the Staffordshire Police Open Day

 

OPEN DAY THIS SUNDAY

STAFFORDSHIRE Police are once again hosting an Open Day at their Stafford headquarters.

The event, this Sunday, between 11am and 4pm, will be a family fun day packed full of activities for both adults and children.

A police spokesman said: “It has been a truly heartbreaking week  after the horrific events in Manchester (Arena Bombing). We have reviewed the security of the open day and taken all the necessary steps to allow the event to take place.

“Staffordshire Police officers and staff have worked extremely hard over the last week to keep out communities safe and reassured and the open day will not affect the level of this policing.”

This will be the fourth open day and again there will be a host of attractions to entertain visitors including a ‘Police Car Experience,’ when children can have the opportunity to be driven around a test track with highly trained police drivers.

Police dogs will be demonstrating how they help tackle crime, with displays from both general purpose dogs and specialist search dogs.

The event is free of charge with a free park and ride service available from the County Showground. There will be a range of hot and cold refreshments available and souvenirs to buy.

Chief Constable Jane Sayers said: “The Open Day is a great way for our communities to find out more about police work and the people behind the uniform who work tirelessly to keep us all safe. The success of the event has been overwhelming with 15,000 people attending last year.

This will be Jane’s last open day as Chief Constable of Staffordshire Police before stepping down from the role.
