Mini Police Scheme for Bridlington Kids

Mini Police Scheme for Bridlington Kids

Officers from Humberside Police's Community Safety Unit have been working with schools to help teach children about the work they do and the importance of being active members of their community.

Through their three month Mini Police pilot, we are working with forty pupils, aged 9 – 11, from four schools across the force area.

The pupils will be invited to specially prepared sessions, run by PCSOs, teaching them about a range of topics to help them become mini ambassadors and learn all about helping to keep themselves and their classmates safe.

The sessions will include information about online safety, crime prevention and social responsibility as well as lessons about the impact that bullying and anti-social behaviour can have on a community.

They are asking them to take what they have learnt in each session and share it with the classmates to help encourage more pupils to think about their safety and their role in the community.

They have pupil representatives from Pearson Primary in Hull, Quay Academy in Bridlington, Holme Valley Primary in Scunthorpe and Enfield Academy in Grimsby.

Community Safety Sergeant, Nick Bunker, said:

“This is an exciting scheme which I am hopeful will encourage the younger generation to think about their role in their community as well as teaching them ways to keep themselves safe.  

We now have forty children signed up, who will be sharing their learning with their friends over the coming weeks, and we are looking forward to seeing what they do as our Mini Police ambassadors.

We will be working closely with the schools throughout the seven weeks to gather feedback to help us assess if the initiative is something that we would like to continue further and potentially open up to other schools in our area.”
