PCSO Haley taking fingerprints with the nursery children in Buxton
Officers from Buxton and Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team paid a visit to a local nursery as part of the children’s ‘People who help us’ topic.
PCSO’s Linda Cook and Patrick Haley visited the Good News Family Care nursery at Charis House to speak to the children about the role of the police and how they work to keep the communities safe.
The policing team spoke to the nursery children about staying safe and road safety and gave them the opportunity to ask questions and try on the police uniform.
PCSO Cook from the Buxton Policing Team said: “Visits like this are a great way for us to engage with children from an early age and speak to them about staying safe and the role of the police.
“The children were working on their ‘People who help us’ project and this was a fantastic opportunity for us to pay them a visit so that they know that we are here.
“It is really important that the kids get to know their Safer Neighbourhood team and the role that we play in the community to keep them safe.”
During the visit on Thursday, March 20, officers also handed out activity work sheets and gave the children, aged 3 and 4-years-old, the chance to take their own fingerprints.
