Potty Training is a project that enters a Public Order Training facility at RAF Cosford based in Wolverhampton. Cosford enables police officers to play out scenarios in a controlled environment, giving them the knowledge and confidence to tackle any situation presented to them on the streets. This includes training in large scale disorders and chemical warfare alongside teaching in Tasers and firearms. These images document the space that attempts to mimic real life surroundings. With large cement walls, small claustrophobic rooms and an essence of a functioning society with pub signs and house doors, everything has been designed with an intention. There are tell-tale signs that give a clear indication that public order training has taken place, these include burn marks, dents and Taser Barbs. The images proceed to question why the facility is designed the way it is and what this says about our society.
