The local policing team have been working with Bournville, Windwhistle and Oldmixon primary schools to build positive relations and inspire our young people to contribute to the wider community by establishing mini-police!
This scheme is an interactive volunteering opportunity for primary school children. It aims to introduce children to a positive experience of policing and to get them involved in the local community.
This help sus build relationships with young children so that they see us as friends who safeguard the community rather than people to be suspicious of.
We hope that being part of the policing family from a young age will lay the foundations for future career aspirations and help these kids to make the right choices in life.

With a new school year about to start we are getting ready to launch our Mini Police programme in the schools in our area for this year. The year 5 pupils will be given application forms and will be interviewed about their interest to join the Mini Police for this school year.
