On Tuesday the 17th December 2019, Consett Police Station is opening the cell doors for the fourth year in a row in aid of local and national charities.
Charity workers are invited by Steve White, Acting Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner for Durham and Jo Farrell, Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary to do a sponsored ‘sleep in a cell’ to increase awareness of the impact of criminalising people in crisis and the need to ensure that vulnerable people are kept safe.
The willing fundraisers will be ‘locked up’ between 9pm and 7am, in their own single cell, with en-suite toilet facilities, mattress and blankets. Mr White will deliver breakfast the following morning. If you are a responsible adult, no minors please, and you are willing to voluntarily sleep in a police cell to raise money for charity please get in touch via Stephanie.Kilili@durham.pcc.pnn.gov.uk or 0191 3752001
