Ever wondered what it’s like to be inside a police cell? Love to get behind the wheel of a police car without being arrested?
That’s exactly what you can do at the police open day in Muswellbrook this Sunday.
Hunter Valley Local Area Command Acting Inspector Bill Langdon said the open day would provide plenty of opportunities for people to get an inside view of police work.
“We are opening up the lockup and charge room, so people can go inside the station and see what a cell looks like and get an understanding of the custody process.”
Acting Inspector Langdon said people could see how the police used current technologies.
“We will demonstrate the process of finger printing, how we use Facebook and other technologies we use as part of our every day work.”
“There will be also be a highway patrol car, police motorcycle, displays from our bomb disposal unit and also the police rescue squad,” Acting Inspector Langdon said.
The open day coincides with the 150th anniversary of policing in NSW.
The Hunter Valley Local Area Command Open Day is at the Muswellbrook Police Station on Sunday, April 29 from 10am until 2pm.
