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.
