Primary pupils to join PCSOs on patrol in Dudley
Pupils from a primary school will join police community support officers on patrol in Dudley after completing a special training programme.
Year 5 pupils from Bramford Primary School, Coseley, took part in the Junior PCSO Scheme, which is run by West Midlands Police.
Youngsters were taught about the roles of PCSOs within the community. Now having completed their training, ten students will now help PSCOs monitor anti-social behaviour, litter and parking in the local area. Under the supervision of officers, the youngsters will even be able to issue parking tickets.
Only a select amount of schools are able to take part in the programme run by the region's police force.
They were presented with certificates by the Police Inspector Insp Pete Sandhu alongside PCSOs Marsden, Wakeman and King.
School headteacher Mrs Guest said: "We were honoured to be offered the opportunity to take part in the Junior PCSO scheme.
"We are big believers in pupil leadership, both as a school as a trust. This program instils the values we hold about community."
