Cramlington welcomes mini police recruits
November 22, 2018
Is it just us or are our new recruits getting a bit smaller?
Neighbourhood cops in Cramlington were delighted to welcome some new additions to the Mini Police family recently.
Ten lucky pupils from Hareside Primary School were presented with shiny new uniforms and their very own police badges by PSCO Beverley Keenleyside and Sergeant Steven Nicklin.
Each year, Northumbria Police recruit new members for the Mini Police scheme – and this time it was the turn of some children in Northumberland.
The scheme was set up so young people from all parts of the Force area can learn a bit more about what the police do.
The students will also play an important role in tidying up our local community and keeping its residents safe.
You may even spot some of them in attendance at events throughout the year.
Cramlington Neighbourhood Sergeant Steven Nicklin was proud to welcome the latest recruits on board.
She said: “It was an honour to be invited down to such an outstanding school and welcome our new officers to the Mini Police family.
“We’ve certainly got a great bunch of pupils signed up for this year who are raring to go!
“I can’t wait for them to get involved in helping their local community while they learn all about our police force too.”
Headteacher at Hareside Primary School, Jacqueline Mowat, said:”We are delighted to have been selected for this exciting project which we think will help our children connect with the community they live in and understand the important role the police play within it.”
