Otley Police open day success
8:00am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
Hundreds of people found out more about their local police force while enjoying a fun day in Otley.
The Aireborough & Wharfedale Neighbourhood Policing Team’s open day at Otley station included tours of the cells, a crime-scene recreation and a fingerprinting game.
Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector Richard Coldwell said: “About 750 people attended and everyone really enjoyed meeting their local policing team and getting a flavour of the many different resources used to protect our communities.
“The CSI crime scene was very popular, as was a tour of the cells, which have recently been used in filming the popular TV series DCI Banks.
“It was a super event and I am glad so many people could come, see our work and show their support for the fantastic police service we provide.”
The £525 proceeds will be shared between local charities. To apply e-mail aa.nptaireboroughwharfedale@ westyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
