Update: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been postponed. We will update you when more information becomes available.
On Wednesday 18 March 2020, several senior officers of the Devon and Cornwall Police Force (DCP) will be detained behind bars to raise money for CHICKS.
Operation Executive LockUp, organised in benefit of the Chief Constable's Foundation, will see members of the Force Executive – as well as some VIPs – locked up in the custody facility at the newly-opened Exeter Police Station on Sidmouth Road.
People are invited to donate a minimum of £5 to extend a detainee's time in custody by one minute, with donors able to choose who their contribution affects.
Detainees announced for the event from the Force Executive are Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer, Deputy Chief Constable Paul Netherton and Assistant Chief Constables Paul Davies, Jim Colwell and Glen Mayhew. The two VIPs taking part are Exeter Chiefs prop Ben Moon and Willmott Dixon Managing Director Rob Woolcock.
Operation Executive LockUp aims to keep each participant in custody detention for the duration of the event. The more money is donated to each individual, the longer they will remain in their cell and the more funds raised for the Foundation.
The Chief Constable's Foundation was set up to raise funds for the Force charity, which is selected by staff and officers on an annual basis. CHICKS was chosen by DCP staff and officers as the 2020 Force charity earlier in the year.
