Teenagers receive a visit to police headquarters as recognition of hard work.

Posted on 1st July 2014

An event was run on Monday, June 30 at Police Headquarters, Ripley for 48 young people from across the four high schools in South Derbyshire.

Claire Rawlins, Anti-Social Behaviour Officer at South Derbyshire District Council and PC Denise Lomas, Safer Neighbourhood Youth Involvement Officer, ran the event entitled an ‘ACE’ day, which stands for those students who have Attended, Contributed and Excelled.


The young people received a guided tour around police headquarters and visited the dog section, armed response team and roads policing unit. The children were presented with certificates and a gift by Chief Constable Mick Creedon.

PC Lomas said: “The aim of the day was to recognise the achievements, hard work and positive behaviour of these young people within school.

“We wanted to run an event that recognises the achievements and efforts of well-behaved children.”
