Lancashire Police have added an extra day for their behind the scenes tours of the police HQ near Preston.


Officers are going to be on hand during a behind the badge day at Hutton.

The first day on Sunday 28 September saw more than 8,000 people register in 24 hours for a free ticket.

Now police have added an extra day on Saturday 27 September to find out more about policing in the county.

The day will include the chance to see police dogs in action, learn about CSI techniques and look inside police cars.

A statement from Lancashire Police said: “We had a fantastic response to our Behind the Badge Open Day at HQ on Sunday 28th September 2014. Unfortunately that meant that all 8,000+ tickets were snapped up within a week, leaving many people disappointed. We have therefore decided to give the general public the opportunity to attend our staff and family open day on Saturday 27th September 2014.”

Around 1,000 tickets are left to grab for free via Eventbrite. The event runs from 10am to 4pm on the Saturday.
