Twenty police cadets and three officers will be spending a night in the cells at the weekend.
But they haven’t broken any laws – rather, they’re sleeping at Hornchurch Police Station to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
They’ll be sponsored for the lock-in, which takes place the night before Sunday’s police open day.
Volunteer police cadet coordinator Pc Matt Ingram said: “The borough’s cadets were really keen to be involved in the open day and wanted to raise money for charity.”
Pop down to the station from 11am and you can tour the building, watch self-defence demos, get your bike security marked, and even try out fingerprinting techniques.
Visitors can also meet police cadets, explore police cars, get home safety advice and enjoy refreshments. Station mascot PCSO Steve is also tipped to make an appearance.
A 41-year-old man has been stabbed at an address in Harold Hill.
