Find out the secrets of Roma watchhouse

EVER wondered how the Roma police's watchhouse works? Now you can find out from those who know.

Roma police officers will be holding a guided tour of the watchhouse, which is used to hold people suspected of crimes or waiting to be charged.

Senior Constable Rochelle Gillette, who will be the main guide, said it a good opportunity for the public to see how the watchhouse worked from a first-hand perspective.

"The program runs from January 15 from 1.30-2.30pm," Snr Const Gillette said.

"The progam teaches children from six years of age about what happens in the watchhouse and what cells look like.

"12 children are booked into the program.

"It shows kids of a young age the operation of a police station watchhouse."

Parents are also welcome to come along with their children to inspect the watchhouse for themselves to learn how Roma Police do their jobs.
