THE headquarters of Hertfordshire Constabulary will be opening up to the public tomorrow (Saturday), to celebrate 175 years of policing in the county.

The base in Stanborough Road, Welwyn Garden City, will be hosting an open day from 11am to 3pm.

Chief constable Andy Bliss said: “The first police force in the county was formed in St Albans in 1836 with Hertfordshire Constabulary being formed five years later.

“We want to celebrate this anniversary by opening up the doors of HQ in WGC. It promises to be an interesting and fun day for the whole family.”

A wide range of events and activities are planned, from firearms and dog unit demonstrations, behind-the-scenes tours of the force control room, and the chance to be fingerprinted.

Admission is free.
