Neighbourhood and traffic officers paid a special visit to a Doncaster primary school, as part of the Mini Police initiative.

The youngsters from Long Toft Primary School learned all about the role of traffic officers and were shown how the lights and sirens work.

They were then able to put their learning into practice, and show off their new skills to their classmates.

Jane MacDonald, the Community Safety Project Officer working with schools in Doncaster, said: “It is great to see how much the children engage with this sort of activity.

“A key part of the Mini Police initiative is all about building trust between young people and our officers. And activities like this today do just that.”

Mel Gleaves, from the Long Toft Primary School support team added: “The children really enjoyed the session - it was nice to see smiles on their faces and enjoyment in their eyes. They loved the experience of being able to go in the police car and van, as well as trying on their helmets.

“Interacting with the police allowed the children to have a more positive view of their role within the community, and we would like to thank the police service for this opportunity at Long Toft.”
