Chingford police station will be open for visitors to look around and learn more about the Met
Police are to give the public a rare behind-the scenes look at what goes on inside a police station.
Chingford police station will open its doors on Sunday September 22, from 10am until 3pm, when visitors can take a tour of the station and ask questions.
Specialist units, equipment and resources the Met use will be on show and senior police officers will be on hand for a chat.
Waltham Forest Police Borough Commander Mark Collins said: “I would like to encourage all of our local residents to attend our open day and look forward to welcoming them to this event.
“This is an excellent opportunity for a behind the scenes visit to your police station and to meet some of the officers who work to keep you and your property safe.”
Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said the open day symbolised the fact that the police are accountable to the public and he urged Londoners to visit the station and learn more about the Met.
Demonstrations on the day include fingerprint taking, custody procedures, emergency life support displays, as well as patrol cars on show.
Free micro chipping for dogs will also be available from 11am until 1pm.
