Heather Stout from the Ovenden Initiative arranged for PCSO’s Georgia Boyle and Martin Pickersgill from West Yorkshire Police to visit St. Michael and All Angels Junior Wardens to tell them all about their roles as police officers on Monday 21 May.
To help them explain their roles, they also brought along the police van and some mini police uniforms for the juniors wardens to wear.
The session began by asking for volunteers to be locked in the cage at the back of the van. Surprisingly quite a few junior wardens happily jumped on board!
Martin and Georgia then spoke about some of their day to day duties before showing the Wardens some of the equipment they carry whilst explaining what it’s used for. When Martin asked for volunteers to try out the handcuffs there was a flurry of hands put up from the Junior Wardens and Ms Brooke (!) who were eager to get involved in the session.
Martin and Georgia also told the Wardens about some of the more unusual aspects of their job including some of the funny things that have happened, before some very good questions were asked by the Junior Wardens who all seemed very keen to know everything about life in the Police Force.
