Ovenden Ward Officer, Pc Kim McCloskey for West Yorkshire Police and PCSO Alice Cordingley was on hand on the estate where the main focal point of the visit was to raise awareness of the work that the neighbourhood officers do.

PCSO Alice Cordingley was also on hand to show the younger members of the group how the police fingerprint criminals.

Jemma Thacker from West Yorkshire Fire Service and White Watch from Illingworth Fire Station also attended on the day and showed the young people and residents around the Fire Engine and talked to local residents about Home Fire Safety.
