A message from Superintendent Tracy Bradley:

Humberside Police, in conjunction with other Emergency Service and Criminal Justice Partners would like to invite you to a Blue Light Showcase Event which is being held at East Park, Hull on Saturday 15th July 2017.

The event will open at 11:00 and is due to close at 17:00.

The event, which is linked to the City of Culture, is an exciting opportunity to showcase the complex and varied work that Emergency Services and Criminal Justice partners undertake and includes various displays including roads policing, police helicopter and police dogs. In addition we have interesting interactive educational scenarios.

All in all we feel that this is a fantastic opportunity for the local community to come along and to learn more about the important work we do.

Please spread the word!
