Police in Newbold have held a surgery at a local school to share advice on staying safe and give pupils a chance to raise any concerns.
Officers from the Dunston, Moor and St. Helens Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team held the event during lunch break at Newbold Community School on Tuesday, March 25.
PCSO Janis Naylor said: “After we held an assembly at the school on staying safe online earlier in the year, we thought it would be a good idea to hold an open session, where students could just pop in to speak us about any issues they were facing during their dinnertime break.
“We had a steady stream of youngsters who came in to say hello, and quite a lot of students wanted to talk about the role of a police officer. More surgeries are being planned, and I hope they will become more even more popular as pupils get used to us being there for the drop-in sessions.”
The team are planning a further drop-in surgery for students at the school during the May term.
