Surfers Paradise Police will open their doors to the public this Saturday, October 1, 2016 to invite the community in to get to know their local police, Queensland Police say.

Activities will include static displays of the rhino, police van, station equipment, police bicycles, Road Policing motorcycle, Explosive Ordinance Response Team, Water Police jet skis, District Multi Cultural Liaison Unit, Crime Stoppers, VIPs and Cluedo the Dog.

The Open Day will run this Saturday October 1, 2016 from 10am to 4pm with two separate locations to see the displays which are Surfers Paradise Police Station, Orchid Avenue and the end of Cavill Street Mall at the Esplanade.

There will also be a free sausage sizzle and soft drink to enjoy on the day.

Officer in Charge of Surfers Paradise Police Station Senior Sergeant Jim Munckton said that the day was a chance for local officers to meet their community and show them around their workplace.

“It is a get to know us and what we do opportunity,” Senior Sergeant Munckton said.

“One of the activities we will run is a scavenger hunt for members of the public to seek out different policing units with stickers along the way back to the station.

“We would love to see as many people come along as possible to say hi and learn more about our core business and what we do.”
