Police have held a presentation at Friskney School to reward pupils for their participation in the force’s Junior PCSO scheme.

The young officers have worked very hard throughout the school year, promoting issues such as property marking and road safety.

Earlier in the year, the JPCSOs helped stage a simulated accident scene outside school to try to encourage better parking.

They also focused on the problem of speeding, calculating graphs using the data from the interactive speed sign, and handing out information leaflets and ‘speeding tickets’ to offending motorists.

PCSO Jayne Richardson, who runs the scheme, said: “The drivers who received the ‘tickets’ all said it made a greater impact on them because a child was explaining the dangers of speeding and all were very supportive of the Junior PCSO scheme”.

Sgt Kate Odlin presented the four pupils with special medals and certificates, together with a shield for the school.
