Pupils invited to chat with local policing team at school drop-in surgeries

Posted on 23rd April 2013

Dates have been set for police drop-in surgeries where  pupils at a Buxton  school can chat to officers about  any issues  they have. 

PCSO Michaela Daniels, from Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, has organised the monthly police surgeries that will take place at St Thomas More Catholic School.

The drop-in sessions last for an hour and are  for students to raise any issues they have and to find out about local policing priorities.

They are also useful for finding out about crime trends and prevention advice for people living in the town.

The next drop-in surgery takes place at the Palace Road school from 12.30pm to 1.30pm on Wednesday, May 15.

Further surgeries will be held on June 5 and July 10.

PCSO Daniels said: “These surgeries are informal drop-in sessions where  we chat to the pupils about things affecting them.

“They’re  also  a fantastic way for  a younger generation to get up-to-date about the Safer Neighbourhood team’s policing priorities and any campaigns or crime prevention advice we have to give them.”

To find out more, call the team on 101.
