Police role play event in Hatfield
SHOPPERS may have seen a number of police officers dealing with various heated incidents in the Galleria in Hatfield.
But the confrontations were just role play exercises forming part of Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Pcso training scheme.
Eleven Pcsos were tested on a number of ‘real life’ scenarios – featuring students at Oaklands College in WGC – on May 10.
The four episodes included nuisance behaviour in the cinema, adults refusing to leave the caf�, students drinking in an alcohol-free designated area and people causing a problem in one of the shops.
Trainer Clive Brain said: “We are very lucky the management of the Galleria has supported us by letting us use their premises, as well as the managers of Odeon Cinema, Caf� Giardino and the Petroleum store, which makes the training seem far more realistic.
