The police schools’ programme has succeeded in defining police inputs by focusing on crime prevention and reduction issues which are considered the area of police expertise. The introduction of a credible school based programme that complies with the ACCAC PSE Framework has meant that the work of police officers in schools now has structure and definition.
Our future challenge is to build on the progress achieved. We intend to accommodate the changing demands of the school and wider communities regarding crime prevention and reduction education.
Aims and Objectives
To work towards achieving Crime and Disorder reduction within our young communities, through the medium of Education.
This is achieved by the Police supported by various agencies. This partnership provides a positive strategy to schools so that all pupils have opportunities to enhance their knowledge, understanding, behaviour, attitudes, values and skills regarding:
- Substance Education
- Anti-Social Behaviour
- Personal Safety
This will inevitably promote the principles of positive citizenship, in school and the wider community.
