Colchester SOS Bus features on BBC Three

SOS Bus Volunteers star in 'Police Academy UK'

The Colchester SOS Bus appeared on BBC Three's Police Academy UK, which featured overseas police officers experiencing policing and public safety in the United Kingdom.

Four police officers, from Colombia, Samoa, Zambia and Australia, experienced a night in Colchester working alongside Essex Police and the programme featured the work of the Colchester SOS Bus in creating a safer environment.

The officers engaged with Open Road's SOS Bus volunteers who provide a night time safe haven in Colchester High Street. Volunteers are trained in first aid and help to produce a safer town centre, reducing the time and resources of the emergency services
