Bradwell youngsters learn more about the police

Posted on 18th October 2018

Youngsters at a school in Bradwell have been getting to know more about the work of police officers and PCSOs.

It is after the children at Bradwell Infant School had the opportunity to meet their local Police Community Support Officer and chat about what police officers and PCSOs do, and how they can help.

They were also able to try out parts of the uniform, find out about the equipment they use and take a look around a police car.

PCSO Anthony Boswell of the Hathersage Area Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “The youngsters were very interested in the work of the police, and enjoyed trying on parts of a uniform and finding out more about the equipment we use.

“Forging links with children while they are young is important to us, as it helps us to build positive relations and encourages confidence in their local police.”

Our officers regularly visit schools to help engage with younger members of the community.

Headteacher of Bradwell Infant School, Geoff Wharton, said: “I was delighted by the response of the children both during and after the visit, when the children completed follow-up work in their classrooms.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to PCSO Boswell for bringing this topic to life for us. We look forward to seeing him later in the year to talk about Stranger Danger and lead a road-safety workshop for the school.”
