Bay of Plenty Police to host public Open Day

Bay of Plenty Police to host public Open Day

Members of the public will have the opportunity to have a behind the scenes look at Policing next month as Rotorua and Tauranga Police stations open their doors to host an Open Day as part of National events being held up and down the country.

The Open Day will be held at the Rotorua and Tauranga Police stations on Sunday March 11.

Bay of Plenty District Commander, Superintendent Andy McGregor says the Open Days are an opportunity for Police to connect with their local communities as well as promoting Police as a career path.

“There will be a number of activities on display during the day to provide members of the public and anyone wanting to join the Police with a real insight into the job we do with displays from our Armed Offenders squad, our Police dog teams and we’ll have staff there from our specialist teams including Road Policing, Youth and CIB.

“We’ll also have staff on hand at both events who can talk to and provide advice and information to anyone considering Policing as a career.

“Bay of Plenty District wants great people to join Police to help us keep this fantastic community safe.

“Our staff are looking forward to welcoming everyone on the day and to give a real hands on view of the different aspects of Policing,” says Superintendent McGregor.
