Police Ambassador Scheme at Ivybridge Community College
On Wednesday, 13 March, students, in Years 7 to10, spent the afternoon with local officers, PC Bond and PCSO Summers, as part of a new Police Ambassador Scheme.
The police officers visited the College to create further links within our community and they wanted our young people to have a voice about what is happening in their community and feel empowered to create positive change. They are the future after all.
The discussion focused on what students could expect from a career in the Police. They then discussed issues such as antisocial behaviour, drugs, sexting and knife crime. The students had to consider what role they could take in aiding the prevention of such crimes and promoting a safer neighbourhood.
Both officers were very impressed and left the students buzzing with the idea of peer education. We look forward to welcoming them again in the Summer Term for another informative session.
