NSW Police Community Engagement Day – Fairfield Eyewatch

NSW Police Force will host Sydney’s largest community engagement and awareness event in the city’s south west on Saturday.

Fairfield Local Area Command will host the third annual NSW Police Community Engagement Day at Fairfield High School between 10am and 3pm Saturday (6 September 2014).

The event, in its fourth year will showcase the varied units within the NSW Police Force and provide a hands-on experience in police work for culturally diverse communities and create strong network opportunities.

Entry is free and free parking is available inside Fairfield High School grounds.

Fairfield Local Area Commander, Superintendent Peter Lennon, said the event will give the public the opportunity to interact directly with the various police units at the events and gain an insider perspective of the work that NSWPF undertake on a daily basis.

“The Police Community Engagement Day has been developed to enable people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to establish direct lines of communication with police in a relaxed environment,” Superintendent Peter Lennon said.

Local police will be joined by specialist units, including Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics Unit, PolAir, Dog Unit, Mounted Unit, Forensic Services Group, Public Affairs Branch, Police Transport Command, Eyewatch and the Bicycle Unit.

“In addition, there will be representatives from the Australian Defence Force, higher education providers, including TAFE and universities, to provide information about a wide range of careers, whether for policing, administrative work or a trade.

“We have also organised local entertainment, international food tasting, rides and giveaways, so there will be something for everyone,” Superintendent Lennon said.

The event is free and all are welcome. Fairfield High School is a five minute walk from Fairfield railway station or free parking is available inside the school grounds.
