Ely PCSO Kat Deronal and PC Malcolm Wood visited the Isle of Ely Primary School to meet the children and talk about what the police do.

Police were asked questions and all the children took the opportunity to try on some uniforms and have some pictures taken.

It was PC Wood’s first time in front of an audience and he said: “It was a tough crowd but I think I won them over.

“It was a lovely experience and it’s nice to get the opportunity to meet some of the younger members of the community, and the teachers who do such a brilliant job educating them.

“School engagement and youth engagement is an important part of protecting the community and crime prevention. The constabulary is keen to build long lasting and positive relationships with young people.”
