Police officers from Poland got a taste of life in the Fens when they visited March police station as part of their fact-finding tour of the UK.
Four officers from the Polish city of Zawiercie paid a visit to March station on Thursday March 10 as part of the International Police Association (IPA) exchange programme, where they compared policing methods with Fenland Police Ops Inspector Will Davis and Inspector Andy Sullivan.
Senior aspirants Adam Granat and Robert Mikoda, Senior Constable Piotr Koby?ka and Sergeant Marta Wnuk were given a tour of the station on Burrowmoor Road, and later met the Mayor of March, Rob Skoulding, where the idea of twinning March with the southern-Polish city was discussed.
Insp Andy Sullivan said: “The visit was a mixture of socialising and policing experience.
“It’s the fifth year that we’ve organised these visits, and four of our officers are due to go over to Poland in September.”
The Polish policemen travelled to London earlier in the week to visit the House of Commons and number 10 Downing Street, and concluded their visit today (March 11) with a trip to Cambridge to visit some of the city’s famed colleges.
