Main article content
A chance to meet police dogs, receive crime prevention advice and learn about recruitment opportunities at Staffordshire Police will be just some of the opportunities on offer at the Staffordshire County Show.
The force will attend this year’s show on Wednesday and Thursday (1/2 June) where attendees will get an opportunity to meet officers and staff who police communities across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Held at the Staffordshire County Showground, Weston Road, Stafford, Staffordshire Police will have their own stand where officers will be offering advice and information to the community on crime prevention around burglary, theft, cyber-crime and rural crime.
Officers will also provide advice and information on road safety, the Smart Alert neighbourhood messaging system and recruitment opportunities.
With the County Show set to be family fun-filled days, the force will also have vehicles for attendees to look at and a chance for them to meet police dogs. Kash the mascot will be making appearances on both days and there will also be a quiz about police dogs.
Our colleagues at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service will also be attending the show.
Superintendent Mark Ward, Head of Local Policing at Staffordshire Police, said: “We’re really looking forward to being at the Staffordshire County Show to give the public an insight into what we do.
“We believe that police forces work better when they have a positive relationship with the public they serve.
“There will be lots of officers, of both the human and dog variety, for you to meet and grab a selfie with, so please bring your family down and have a fun and informative day."
