Back to the classroom for police in Ashington

Dated: 12 Feb 2012

Police in Ashington have been back in the classroom to discuss bullying and anti-social behaviour.

CSO Helen Halliday and PC Dave French, from the local Neighbourhood Policing Team, visited children at Hirst Park Middle School and took over their assembly for a morning.

They discussed anti-social behaviour, carried out role plays around bullying and held a question and answer session with pupils.

CSO Halliday said: "The morning was fantastic, the children got so involved with the role play and the feedback we got from the question and answer session afterwards showed that they really understood what we'd been discussing. Opportunities like this are great ways to engage with young people and we were delighted to take part."
