Members of the RAF Police from RAF Northolt have been inspiring female students from local schools to consider a career in the Royal Air Force.

The Inspire Women event, held in partnership with the South-East Area RAF Recruiting and Selection, saw RAF Police specialists in Law Enforcement, Military Working Dogs and the Civil service showcase the vast array of roles within the RAF Police.

"Pupils really enjoyed learning about forensics, taking part in fingerprinting activities, looking at the kit, equipment and vehicles we use and asking lots of questions about our job.” She added “Meeting vehicle search Dog Dexter was a massive highlight!"
