Battersea Police Station to hold last public event this weekend
A police station is opening its doors to the public for the last time this weekend.
Police are giving visitors the chance to gain a behind the scenes glimpse into life in Battersea Police Station, Battersea Bridge Road, on Sunday.
The event is taking place to give people the opportunity to say a final farewell to the station before it permanently closes.
There will be factual displays and events for the family to learn about policing through the ages.
Senior police officers will be giving talks about policing in the area, while tours of the station will be given.
There will also be fingerprint taking demonstrations, equipment on display as well as police horses on site.
Staff at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home will be offering free microchipping to pet owners after the government announced all dogs must be chipped by April 2016.
The police station is closing to make way for the new Local Policing Model (LPM), which came into effect on September 16.
The free open day is taking place on Sunday from 10am-4pm.
