Pupils were given a talk on all things policing this week when members of Cambridgeshire constabulary stopped by at primary schools in Ely and Witchford.
On Tuesday March 15, pupils at Witchford Rackham Primary school were treated to a visit from PC Becky Hughes and PC Gerry Cronin, who helped teach the school’s reception classes about the police, the police car, safety on the road and stranger danger issues.
Pupils got to speak to the control room through the police radio and enjoyed asking questions about what the police do.
PC Cronin said: “It’s lovely do safety work with the kids. We often get parents pointing us out saying ‘If you’re naughty that man will take you away’ and things like that. Actually, we want children to know that they can come to us if they are lost or need help.
“Spending time with the children like this helps to build familiarity, and hopefully we can teach them things that keeps them safe too.”
