Nepalese Experience Day Visit to Kent Police Training School
Following a successful evening at Ashford in August when over ninety members of the Nepalese Community heard from senior members of Kent Police about the employment opportunities available with in their service, further talks took place that resulted in an Experience Day visit to the Kent Police Training School on Monday 1st December, 2014.
The day was masterminded by Trevel Henry, Positive Action Officer for Kent and Essex Police, who has been at the forefront of all the events and meetings so far and was attended by ten very keen participants whose interests were becoming police officers, police community support officers or an administrative role. The programme set was intense and designed to allow the participants to gain further knowledge of the complexities of various roles, responsibilities and training within the Police Service for both Regular, Civilian and Administrative staff.
Inputs and demonstrations were given ranging from the recruitment and training processes to more practical aspects contained in Personal Safety, Public Order and Tactical Firearms and the work of the Crime Group and Crime Scene Investigation department. These were all well received before the Head of Diversity for Kent and Essex Police, Zoe Hack brought the day to a conclusion with a question and answer session.
Our hearty thanks go to the personnel involved with setting the day up and especially the trainers who delivered such enthusiastic and informed sessions. It is a delight to be involved with Kent Police in this particular project and hopefully it will bear fruit in the not to distant future!
