Limehouse police station to be opened to public
Members of the public are being given a glimpse inside police stations this month – and they won’t have to commit a crime for the privilege.
The Metropolitan Police are throwing open the doors of stations to give people an insight into the way they work.
Senior officers will also be on hand as the public are invited to see specialist equipment and resources the Met has at its disposal.
The Met’s Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, said: “I want the Met to be an open organisation. We are accountable to the public.
“These open days symbolise that openness - and I hope people enjoy looking around their local station.”
