Thousands celebrate 160 years of policing in Kent at Open Day
More than 13,000 people helped celebrate 160 years of policing in the county at the Kent Police fun day.
A flying visit from the police helicopter, a public order display with petrol bombs, the police dogs and a wide range of other attractions drew the crowds to the Kent Police College, Maidstone, on Sunday 2 July 2017.
Visitors also had the chance to discuss all things policing with Chief Constable Alan Pughsley. Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott had his own stand on the day, promoting his Annual Policing Survey.
Other attractions included:
Kent Police wishes to thank everyone who attended.
- A demonstration of how Tasers work and are used;
- Visits from South East Coast Ambulance Service and Kent Fire and Rescue Service;
- A demonstration of the Kent Police drone and how it is used;
- A live demonstration of the emergency services responding to a serious collision;
- A chance for people to find out more about the court system, and lots more.
