Ellon’s Community Policing Team will host an Open Day at the town’s police office later this month.

The event will be held on Saturday, May 25 between 1.30pm and 4pm. and will coincide with the Ellon Fire Station Open Day.

Members of the public are invited to come along to the Bridge Street station for the chance to meet with local officers and hear about the work of the various police units.

There will also be tours of the station, the opportunity to see inside the cells and visitors can also have their fingerprints and photographs taken.

Sergeant Scott McKay said: “I am pleased to be able to open our doors and invite members of the public to visit our station and to answer any questions they may have about Policing within their local area.

“Officers and Special Constables will also be on hand to provide advice on Crime Reduction and Special Constable Recruitment. We have organised for a number of specialist resources to attend, including firm favourite the Police Dogs, and will have Police Scotland Youth Volunteers carrying out fun activities in and around the station.

“These events are a great opportunity for the public to engage with Police and learn about the varied role of a Police Officer.”
