Lewisham Police Station will open to the public from 10am tomorrow. The website says:

The open day will be a family event encouraging visitors to take a look behind the scenes of the largest police station in Europe.

The event will be opened at 10:00 am by the Borough Commander for Lewisham Borough Police, Chief Superintendent Jeremy Burton.

Visitors will be able to cast their eyes over vintage police vehicles and original police artefacts that include old-fashioned handcuffs and historic police uniforms from the 1800s.

In keeping with modern policing, there will be a number of stalls with scenes of crime officers explaining the role they perform at critical incidents, visitors will get the chance to have their fingerprints taken which will not be kept on file but placed on a badge as a souvenir for them to take home.

They will also be able to try on riot gear, stroke police horses and speak directly with local officers and officers from specialist units that include the Territorial Support Group (who assist the borough in tackling street crime and large scale public order incidents) and Counter Terrorism Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit.

With thanks to Bob.
