More than a thousand people got a glimpse behind the scenes when Bromley Police Station opened its doors on Saturday.
Visitors were invited to get behind the wheel of police patrol vehicles and take a closer look at police motorbikes, as well as help solve a mock crime scene created by the local forensic team.
There were also guided tours around the custody suite, the opportunity to have fingerprints taken, meet police dogs and handle deactivated versions of the weapons used by the MPS Specialist Firearms Command.
Bromley Borough Comm Steph Roberts said: “I was delighted to see so many people come along and find out about their local police, it was really pleasing to see that the event was so well attended.
“So many aspects of policing were on display and people were truly fascinated by them.”
