Who is it run by?
The workshop is conducted by police officers and PCSOs in order to build a positive relationship with the police and increase understanding of what the police do.
What topics will be covered?
The workshop aims to give the children the skills to report incidents with the knowledge that they will be taken seriously, and inspire confidence in their interactions with the police. We also explore what it means to be a good citizen by promoting positive behaviours in the community while developing an understanding of personal responsibility.
We look at raising awareness of personal safety, including safer use of the internet, and encourage critical thinking skills towards their online behaviour. This is done alongside aiming to develop personal safety awareness giving the children confidence, and the tools needed, to stay safe when presented with risky situations.
How long does the workshop take?
The workshop requires around half a day to deliver and can be provided for a single class at a time or larger groups, such as a whole year group. We can also deliver to other youth groups that cover the same age range, such as Brownies and Cubs and the time can be adjusted to suit.
