Deniliquin Local Area Command hosted its Community Awareness of Policing Program, with the aim to develop a greater understanding among residents of police work in their community.
Community organisations and local government representatives were invited to be involved.
They were given an insight into all policing aspects including forensics, highway patrol, riot squads and local emergency management.
Acting Superintendent Mick Tranby said this was the first CAPP to be held in Deniliquin, with plans to hold more in the future.
‘‘We had six people attend and we invited about 10,’’ he said.
‘‘The day included a detective presentation on old cases and how we investigate, and information on the crime scene unit.
‘‘There was a presentation on regional emergency management and after lunch we got into the hands-on activities.
‘‘They got to dress up in our riot gear and we explained exactly how the gear would be used.’’
Deniliquin Council manager environmental services Julie Rogers said it was ‘‘an excellent insight into police operations’’.
‘‘We now have a better understanding of what the NSW Police Force are doing in our community,’’ she said.
‘‘We looked at everything from finger-printing data, to the police vehicles and learnt about the work of detectives in cases.’’
CAPP was developed by the NSW Police Force Customer Service Program.
