Have you ever wondered what it’s like to examine a crime scene? Respond to a 999 call? Investigate a murder? If so then this Friday (October 10th) is your opportunity to watch live as Sussex Police opens its doors to a variety of policing departments across the county.
From 9.00 am live footage will be streamed on the Sussex Police website for 24 hours of real life policing as it happens.
In the morning Chief Constable Giles York will introduce the next 24 hours alongside Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne’s Youth Commissioners. They will then go behind the scenes at their police training facility Kingstanding where college students will get the opportunity to solve a crime.
Throughout the rest of the day viewers will get to see how their Crime Scene Investigators (CSIs) work, join Neighbourhood Policing Teams advising on crime prevention and tackling anti-social behaviour, see Neighbourhood Response Teams attend 999 incidents, watch their canine crime fighters at work and follow traffic cops as they work to make our roads safer.
This is just a taster of what will be on offer to see over the 24 hours. For the full schedule follow this link: www.sussex.police.uk/spp
Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions by emailing: email@example.com or via Twitter (@Sussex_Police) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/SussexPoliceForce) using the hashtag #24HoursLive.
Five Sussex residents have also won the chance to be presenters for the day. They will be spending time with officers and staff asking your questions. The competition winners had to submit a two-minute video showing their interviewing skills. To see their efforts, go to http://youtu.be/v-UzUdJHXmM
