Police training day – Nothing to see here!

24th April 2019

Sgt. Jason Pegden informs us, “We are planning a training day in the Harbour on the 28th May 2019. We have a number of officers attending, also we are hopefully meeting with Border Force and the RNLI in the pit to undertake a couple of scenarios. Just in case members wonder what is happening, we thought we should let you know, it should only last a few hours as the tide is not very big that day. Thanks, Sgt Jason Pegden.”   Thanks for letting us know, Jason.
