Celebrating 160 years of policing in Kent

Written by Irina Treikale on 05th June 2017


We've now started our countdown to the next Kent Police Open Day, being held at the Kent Police College, Coverdale Avenue, Maidstone on Sunday 2 July 2017.

This open day is a fantastic opportunity to find out about the work we do across the county, watch our teams in action and test your skills at an array of activities.

What's on?

Running from 10am-4pm, the event offers something for all ages:

  • Watch our popular police dog, public order and personal safety demonstrations.
  • Find out how we work with emergency service partners to keep Kent’s roads safe and watch us carry out a live pursuit following a collision in our vehicle training area.
  • See how we’ve solved some of our most newsworthy crimes – and the lengths criminals go to in hope to evade the law.
  • Get tips on road safety and meet our police dog, marine, motorcycle, helicopter and crash investigation teams.
  • Spend time in a cell, collect evidence at our crime scene or get crime prevention advice to keep your family, your valuables and your home safe this summer.
  • Check out the latest job and volunteering opportunities and chat to our teams to see if a career in policing is for you.

More details, including the event programme will be released shortly – so watch this space.

What you need to know

  • Show times will be repeated, so whether you come first thing or later on you won't miss out.
  • The Kent Police College complex is on Coverdale Avenue (behind Morrison's). 
  • There will be limited free public/disabled parking - look out for car park signs on the day. Sat nav postcode: ME15 9DP
  • Assistance dogs only (no dogs left in vehicles).
  • Food, drink & ice creams can be purchased on site.
  • No tickets are required, but please join our Facebook event page so we can gauge numbers.
