Have your say

Cambridgeshire Police dealt with a protest, violence and serious public disorder on Friday...but thankfully it was all just part of a training exercise.

The exercise, run by the Operational Planning and Support Unit (OPSU), consisted of student officers being trained in tactics and techniques to deal with protest, violence and serious public disorder, taking into account the use of force and the application of human rights legislation.
