Arms and Knife Ed­u­ca­tion.

The kids then got the chance to look around a po­lice ve­hi­cle and ask ques­tions. The day ended with a pre­sen­ta­tion around public or­der sit­u­a­tions with pupils be­ing shown po­lice uni­form and spe­cial­ist kit.

On the Tues­day pupils from took part in a traf­fic and speed­ing ex­er­cise on Bells Hill with PC Liz John­son, PC Dawn Se­ston from Roads Polic­ing, PCSO Paul Dob­bin and PCSO Be­nawra and were given the chance to ques­tion driv­ers caught speed­ing near their school.

A pre­sen­ta­tion from Ad­dac­tion fol­lowed and pupils also heard a pre­sen­ta­tion from Bucks Fire ser­vice.

Stoke Po­ges pupils vis­ited the for­mer head­quar­ters of Berk­shire Con­stab­u­lary at Sul­ham­stead on Wednesday May 18, now a mu­seum and train­ing cen­tre.

They saw dis­plays on the his­tory of Thames Val­ley Po­lice and col­lec­tor items from the Great Train rob­bery of 1963, uni­forms, equip­ment, medals, pho­to­graphs and scenes of crime ev­i­dence. Pupils vis­ited the Of­fi­cer Safety Cen­tre and took part in of­fi­cer safety ex­er­cises.

On Thurs­day last week, Khalsa School pupils had a pre­sen­ta­tion from PCSO Be­nawra on Stop and Search and took part in a quiz on what they learnt.

There was also do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in­put from a youth worker at Wy­combe Women’s Aid and the day ended with pre­sen­ta­tions around cy­ber safety, child sex­ual ex­ploita­tion and a va­ri­ety of pre­sen­ta­tions.

PCSO Be­nawra said: “I re­ally en­joy or­gan­is­ing and de­liv­er­ing these four days as it pro­vides a real sense of achieve­ment know­ing that the pupils are far more in­formed of polic­ing than they ever were be­fore and gives them a good plat­form for the fu­ture to make good de­ci­sions and to stay on the right side of the law.

“Work­ing along­side my col­leagues, we have run this pro­gramme over a num­ber of years now which has been very well re­ceived.

“I would like to thank those in ad­vance for tak­ing time out of their busy sched­ules to de­liver their pre­sen­ta­tions this week. Your time and in­put is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by us all.

“Lastly, I would like to thank staff and pupils from both schools who have come to­gether to take up this op­por­tu­nity to learn about polic­ing. I hope you find it use­ful and in­ter­est­ing.”
