Bakewell Brownies await educational police visit

Posted on 9th September 2013

The Brownie youngsters are eagerly awaiting a visit from the Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team to learn about Stranger Danger and road safety awareness.

PCSO Hayley Grundy will be visiting the group on Tuesday, October 1 for a chat around Stranger Danger, road safety awareness and what the police do in the community to help keep them safe.

This will include the importance of telling an adult where they are going, who they are going with and when they will be back, not to talk to strangers and being extra careful when crossing roads.

The talk comes as part of the Safer Neighbourhood team’s ongoing engagement to advise youngsters about staying safe and raising awareness of the dangers of crime and anti-social behaviour.

PCSO Hayley Grundy, from Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “It is important for us to engage with youngsters as early as possible and getting out to their Brownies group is a great way to teach them about the policing work we do.

“It's important for them to know who their local police officers are and the importance of road safety and stranger danger, especially with the darker nights drawing in.”
