Martial arts and police horses will be among the attractions
7:00am Monday 3rd September 2012 in Keighley
Attractions ranging from martial arts displays to visits by police horses and dogs will feature at Keighley police’s annual open day.
There will be a chance to dunk an officer on a ducking stool and face-painting, a bouncy castle and refreshments.
Crime prevention advice and tours of the police station will also be on offer.
The event, on Sunday, September 9, takes place at the police HQ in Royd Ings Avenue from 11am to 3pm.
Sgt Craig Marshall, of the Keighley Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The open day is one of our highlights and this year we’re very pleased with the attractions on offer for what should be a fun day, which will give people an insight into what policing is about.
“Visits from our mounted officers and police dogs are always a highlight, while our officers are planning plenty of fun.
“We’re also grateful to partner organisations for attending on the day and providing stalls for visitors to browse through.
“The open days remain a great chance for us to meet residents informally, get to know them better and also provide some crime prevention advice and guidance in an informal setting.
“I’d ask local residents who do have some free time on September 9 to pop down and see us.”
