Pinner police station to open doors to the public

Harrow Times: Police station to open doors to the public Police station to open doors to the public

A police station will be opening its doors to the public to give a look at what goes on behind the scenes of the Met.

The Harrow police community day will take place at Pinner Police Station, in Waxwell Station, on Sunday September 22, from 10am to 4pm.

People visiting the station will be able to talk to officers about policing in their area and get a tour of the building to see the workings of one of the borough’s police station.

There will also be a free cycle security marking stall where people will be able to get their bikes marked.

Metropolitan police commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe hopes the events will show how the force is an open organisation and will give people the chance to learn more about the police.

I criticised the Police in a previous comment. However, if the Police really want to break the stereotype of them all being Freemasons with blue lights and sirens, on a power trip, then showing the rest of us what they actually do is certainly a good start.

All we usually seem to hear is “need more money”, “need more staff”, and after a while that starts to wear a bit thin…

I’d genuinely be interested to know if what they do is really as difficult as it’s made out to be, whether they are ham-strung by politicians, or if it’s all just smoke and mirrors.
