Police Scotland are holding an open day this Saturday at Fettes Police Station.
There will be demonstrations and displays from all kinds of specialist units like our Marine Unit (a boat will be docked in the grounds especially for the occasion) Roads Policing (snazzy fast bikes will be present) and not forgetting the Dog Unit (I’ve been reliably informed the pooch is excited)… to name but a few!
The event is being held thanks to support from Lothian Buses who will be there on the day and is open to everyone. Numerous other partner agencies are also getting involved. Mountain rescue, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, RNLI and 6VT youth café will all be amongst the fun, ready and willing to chat to you about what they do in our community.
Education aside, it’s certainly set to be activities-galore! Edinburgh Rugby and the British Army may have a few tricks up their sleeves for the more active attendees. Whereas Arcari Ice Cream is also an option for those opting for the ‘chill out and absorb’ approach. Either way, the kiddiewinks will be set for a decent sleep after a full-on day at Fettes 🙂
Also in attendance will be the Edinburgh Police Choir, which is made up of serving and retired officers, as well as members recruited through the local community.
The choir has performed at some prestigious events, including Edinburgh’s ‘Street of Light’ on the High Street during the festive period… Music to your ears?! You don’t want to miss them 🙂
So, to find out more about what we do on a daily basis, get some crime prevention advice, see how we work with other agencies or generally just come and meet some of the people from all of these wonderful organisations, then LOCK IT IN and we’ll see you on the 23rd!
The event runs from 11-2 on Saturday.
