Residents invited to take tour of Wimbledon police station cells
Wimbledon Police station will open its doors later this month giving the public a behind the scenes glimpse into a working police station.
Visitors will be able to talk to local senior police officers about policing in their area, take a tour of the custody area and watch demonstrations including the searching of vehicles, fingerprint taking and officer safety techniques.
The Safer Transport Teams will be carrying out free cycle security marking of bicycles and registering the details on BikeRegister to help tackle and prevent cycle crime.
Detective Superintendent David Palmer said: "Merton Police are committed to delivering an effective and relevant service to people living, working and visiting Merton Borough Operational Command Unit.
"This open day, I hope, will show those choosing to visit Wimbledon Police Station how we operate, show some of the technical equipment we use to support our activity and create a better understanding of how we work to support you and keep you safe from criminals.
"We are a public service and it is important to us to be as open as possible.
"I hope this open day will not only be interesting and enjoyable but give you an insight and greater confidence in the work we undertake on your behalf.
"I urge all of Merton’s communities to visit Wimbledon police station on the day and learn more about the Met and your local police."
All are welcome to drop into the police station on Sunday, September 22, between 10am to 4pm.
