Gloucestershire police postpone open day again

The annual Gloucestershire Constabulary Open Day has been cancelled for a second time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The event, which attracted almost 12,000 visitors to Waterwells in 2019 and has run since 2014, was cancelled in September.

And despite the impending relaxation of restrictions, ongoing concerns including staffing issues have seen this year's event postponed until spring 2022.

Chief Constable Rod Hansen said: "The Open Day is one of the highlights of our year, and we're always proud to welcome visitors to Waterwells to meet their local force, it's a real celebration of what we do in Gloucestershire.

"While it would be wonderful to celebrate after the tough year we've all faced, I hope we'll be able to return safely in 2022 with an even bigger celebration than ever before."

The free events offers the chance to meet the police, sit in a patrol car, visit the Control Room and custody facilities, watch police dog demonstrations and even see a riot in action.
