Thousands Attend Police Open Day 2009: 600am Saturday

Thousands attend police open day

6:00am Saturday 15th August 2009 Almost 4,000 people visited the Thames Valley Police open day nearly double the number who attended last year.
The event was held in the grounds of Thames Valley Police Training Centre at Sulhamstead, near Reading, last Saturday. It is the fourth year the event has been run and the number of exhibits, stands and displays doubled those at previous events. The dog section put on two displays and the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Extrication Team showed how they get injured people safely out of cars after a collision. The firearms department also hosted four viewings of their Worlds Collide DVD, a film produced to warn young people on the dangers of replica firearms. The film was followed by a talk from a firearms officer. As well as all the stalls and displays, there was a free tractor ride, an interactive murder scene, paint-balling with the army, free face painting and the chance to have your fingerprint put into a key ring and your mug-shot taken!
