Sue Mountstevens will be attending the launch of Avon and Somerset's 'Mini Police' scheme.
Children in south Bristol are being given a taste of policing at an early age, as part of the new scheme.
Year 5 pupils at Oasis Academy Connaught in Knowle West, will be the first cohort in the new Mini Police, an extension of our popular and successful Volunteer Police Cadets.
The scheme is already being run in a number of other police forces across the country, including Durham, Merseyside, Northumbria and Thames Valley. As well as Avon and Somerset Police, Gwent, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Police are all joining the scheme in 2017 – 2018.
The first 15 pupils to take part in Bristol were selected through an interview process with the school’s Assistant Principal and Learning Mentor, as well as Sergeant Shyne.
During their time in the Mini Police, the children will take part in a range of activities and trips, which will help to develop their understanding of the police, as well as to build links within their community.
