Last updated at 17:25, Thursday, 28 August 2014
PROUD youngsters paraded at Barrow town hall after successfully completing a junior citizenship scheme.
For the last six weeks, 20 children aged 10 and 11 have been learning policing and crime solving skills as part of Barrow Police’s first ever Junior PCSO scheme.
On Tuesday, the group, along with friends, families, teachers and local dignitaries, gathered at Barrow Town Hall in Duke Street for a special awards presentation.
The children were awarded certificates at the event for their work on the scheme, which included conducting a litter pick at South Walney National Nature Reserve and investigating a mock burglary scene at Barrow Fire Station.
Guests were shown a video documenting all the things the children have taken part in at the weekly sessions.
Richard Rhodes, Cumbria police and crime commissioner, said: “The Junior PCSO scheme is a great opportunity for young people to gain a better understanding of the role of the police in the community and the impact of antisocial behaviour.”
