Station to station…

Last month we held our second annual Walsall Police Station Open Day, attracting many hundreds of people to explore the cells and meet our officers without the inconvenience of having to be arrested first.

Although I couldn’t make it myself, I know that we’ve had plenty of feedback from those who did make their way down to say how enjoyable it was.

Obvious highlights included the fierce police dogs, cute police puppies and a helicopter perched on our rooftop.

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by local photographer Steve Walker who had come along and taken some excellent snaps capturing the excitement of the day. Very kindly, Steve offered to put the pictures onto a disc and drop them in for me at the station.

If you’ve not noticed over on my Facebook ‘fan’ page, I’ve uploaded the whole set to a special gallery for your viewing pleasure.

What follows are a few of my favourites, please check out the gallery to see the rest and thanks again to Steve for taking the time to help us out.

The Open Day featured both types of police dog – the cute ones…

…and not cute.

The ‘Platoon’ – an important part of public order policing.

Our ever-popular band warming up in the gym.

Thanks again to Steve for letting us use his images.

    Nice one Richard. Thanks very much for the “name check”. Hope that there’s another open day next year.
