What is the Mini Police?
The Mini Police project within Durham Constabulary is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for 9 to 11-year-old children. The Mini Police support the force priorities, through participation in school and community engagement events. Those involved can look forward to developing a confident voice through enjoyable experiencences.
Children who become part of the programme can help to tackle local issues, as highlighted by their own communities. By assisting the police service, they also carry that ownership and pride back into the community they live in.
What are we doing?
Our first job is to try on our Mini Police uniforms.
Mrs Caygill has then asked us to introduce ourselves in a whole school assembly.
We will be helping out at our KS2 Christmas Carol Service.
Our first visit is to Spennymoor Custody Suite in December.
