Call for vigilance around schools
Rutherglen Police are asking local residents to be vigilant to keep vacant school grounds safe this summer.
The school holidays are in full swing and secondary and primary schools in the area will be practically empty over the summer months.
At this time of the year, the community policing team at Rutherglen make an extra effort to ensure that the schools remain safe and secure.
The policing team, who are working closely with the council, would ask that local residents also assist in ensuring school buildings and grounds remain secure, by being vigilant and reporting anything suspicious.
PC Richard Samson, Safer Communities Department of Rutherglen Police office, said: “Schools are an important part of the community and we all share responsibility for helping prevent any vandalism or thefts over the summer.
“Throughout the summer, officers will be out on foot and cycle patrol and carrying out additional patrols around the local schools.” Contact police on the non emergency 101 number or 999 if you see anything suspicious around any schools.
