Police visit local nursery and pre-schools in Buxton

Posted on 31st May 2017

Officers from the Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team visited youngsters at a nursery and a pre-school to offer advice on road safety and speak about the work of the police.

PCSOs Rachael Blackley and Linda Cook visited the children, who were aged between two and four years old, at both St Anne’s Preschool and Buxton Nursery on Wednesday, May 17 and Friday, May 19.

They covered advice on crossing the road safely and also all types of work the police do and how they can help, and gave them an opportunity to try on parts of a police uniform.

PCSO Blackley said: “Visits like these are a fun way for little ones to interact and get to know their local police, and also for us to deliver some very important safety messages such as how to stay safe when out and about and near to roads.

“They had a whole variety of questions for us, and we left some stickers and road safety colouring sheets for them to complete with their teachers after our visit.”

Officers from our local Safer Neighbourhood teams make regular visits to schools to engage with youngsters.
