Kent Police Schools Open Day

On Friday, our Year 6 children went to the Kent Police Schools Open Day in Maidstone.  This event is organised specifically for Year 6 children and is aimed at their developmental and transitional needs as they head towards secondary education. There were a wide range of interactive displays including online safety, road safety, alcohol and drug awareness as well as:-

Live demonstrations from police dogs and handlers
A fly by from the National Police Service helicopter
A visit to the street scene where children could search for evidence with crime scene investigators
A visit to the firearms range
Crime prevention stalls with information to help children stay safe out and about and online
Demonstration of the Police control room (where emergency 999 calls are taken)
A visit to a custody suite and the chance to sit in a cell
Lots of emergency service vehicles which children could sit on or go inside, including police, fire, ambulance and search and rescue vehicles.
