Learners from the level 2 & 3 Public Services Courses were invited to spend a couple of days at the West Midlands Police Regional Public Order training centre.
Whilst there they were able to observe first-hand how the Police deal with a number of public order situations, from peaceful demonstrations right through to full blown riots including petrol bombings.
The learners were able to take part as protesters and were also given training in Method of Entry tactics and shield training. They were also given an insight into how the Police are trained in using Tasers and Police Dogs.
Programme leader Paul Tonks stated
“ This was a fantastic opportunity for the learners to see how the theory they learn in the classroom is actually carried out by the professionals in the field. They were able to see first-hand how professional the Police are at dealing with a variety of serious public order situations”
Some students quotes include
“Had a great day and gained an insight into the career that cannot be found online”
Ellie Woodhouse “to sum up the day it was explosive and educational”
Tom Foster “It was a quality day and a great insight into how the police train”
Megan Southall “ It was interactive and full of information.
