Children could get their fingerprints taken, take the speed gun challenge, get a cycle security marked and meet the local policing team as well the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Councillor Jason Ablewhite.
There was also a police dog display and other activities.
Sergeant Phil Priestley said: “Thank you to everyone who attended our Ely Police Station open day yesterday.

“Highlights included trying on the police uniforms, taking on the speed gun challenge and exploring the police cars, ambulance and fire engine.”
