Gatwick Community Engagement Day takes place 27 September 2011

Next Tuesday, 27 September 2011, is Gatwick Community Engagement Day – an annual event hosted by Sussex Police in which they highlight the work carried out to protect Gatwick Airport.

The event takes place between 8am and 1pm in The Goldfish Bowl on the ground floor of Jubilee House.

There will be presentations, display stands and experts will be able to brief staff, give advice and answer any questions. Gatwick Police Counter Terrorism Unit and Gatwick Police Dog Unit will also be attending.

Sergeant Simon Luck said; “The first two events were really successful, with several hundred people attending each time, so we have made this an annual occasion.

“Staff at the airport play a vital role in security, acting as additional ears and eyes whether in relation to crime or terrorism. This day is very much aimed at helping staff keep up to date with what we in the emergency services and partner agencies are doing.”

Geoff Williams, Head of Security at Gatwick Airport said, “The continued safety and security of our passengers, airlines and staff is Gatwick Airport’s number one priority and events like this remind us of the importance of working together to deliver an even better, safer airport for all.”
