I was there just the other day. Just to get some documents witnessed mind you.

There is a buzzer at the front desk with a sign saying something like "Do not use unless it is an emergency. We know you are there and someone will come out shortly."

And you look up at the mirrored glass and realised they really do know you are there. They can can see you but you can't see them.

It certainly made me wonder what lies behind the glass and what goes on in there.

Well on Saturday 19th of October everyone can be privy to what goes on inside this police station as Kew's Boroondara Police Station is holding an Open Day.

You will get to see areas that most of the public don't normally get to see, such as the police cells and interview rooms.

And because of the number of cop show dramas on our televisions a lot of folks have an inordinate fascination with what these places look like.

Locals might also like to talk to the police on duty about any concerns they have, as well as gaining some crime prevention tips.

There will be tours throughout the day and kids can get their photos taken with the police cars as well as taking home their very own police badge.

It all sounds like a great free day's outing.
