Keep in Touch Day made more exciting through local donations

21 July 2015

UPS Keep in Touch Day 2015

Donations made by local companies helped to make the recent Uniformed Public Services (UPS) ‘Keep in Touch Day’ an even more exciting event for the new UPS students starting with the college in September.  

Donning ballistic vests from Safeguard Armour LTD, and enjoying a go with the lights and sirens given by Thames Valley Police for the college’s new response vehicle, which was donated by a member of the public, made the students’ day of role-playing arrests all the more exciting and ‘real’.

Students experienced how it would feel to make an arrest and learnt about the safety issues involved; an experience greatly enhanced through the generous donations made by our local contributors.

Nigel Pumffrey, UPS lecturer, said: “These kinds of donations to our college ensure our students gain a further understanding of the equipment and processes that are currently in place with the military and emergency services, as they can see it all with their own two eyes.

“For instance, Safeguard Armour LTD’s vests have been used in role-play for Police powers, responding to Emergency Service incidents and were also worn at our Public Services Show, held this May, by students walking around the showground.

“These extra tools always receive attention when on display at our open events, where prospective students can see what they would be experiencing if they joined our UPS course.”
