SHOALHAVEN Local Area Command will give the local community an insight into what policing is all about at an open day on September 21. Visitors to the event at Nowra Anglican College will be able to talk to officers from the Shoalhaven LAC and specialist units about the different aspects of everyday policing.
The open day which will run between 9.30am and 2pm will also feature static and interactive displays and demonstrations from a number of police specialist units and other emergency service organisations, including POLAIR, Police Rescue Squad, Dog Unit, Traffic and HWP Command, NSW Ambulance, NSW Fire and Rescue and Marine Rescue Shoalhaven.
Shoalhaven Local Area Command customer service duty officer, Inspector Steve Johnson said the open day would create a great opportunity for police to engage with the community.
“It is important for the public to see the capability of their local police and some of the specialist resources available to assist us in reducing crime, violence and fear in the community,” said Inspector Johnson.
“Some of the organisations that local police work with will also be having displays at the event.
“The open day will provide members of the public with a great opportunity to chat to police officers, and check out some of the latest police technology.”
The event is free and all are welcome.
