Bournville are really excited about a new initiative we are running this year with the.
We will soon be inviting Y5 children to apply for one of 20 mini police officer vacancies.
This will be an interactive volunteering opportunity for primary school children with the aim of introducing children to a positive experience of policing and to get them involved in the local community. The scheme is being promoted by the National Volunteer Police Cadets.
The scheme is already being run in a number of other police forces across the country, including Durham, Merseyside, Northumbria and Thames Valley. As well as Avon and Somerset Police, Gwent, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Police are all joining the scheme in 2017 – 2018.
