This week two attestation ceremonies have been held in Anglesey for our latest Mini Police recruits.
Chief Inspector Gethin Jones and other members of our Neighbourhood Policing Teams attended Ysgol Gymuned Llannerch-y-medd and Ysgol Llanfawr to hold welcoming ceremonies for our newest hoard of Mini Police.
Students were sworn into their new roles in an attestation ceremony that presented the children with their new uniforms and Mini Police warrant cards.
Each child has had to write an application form and attend a formal interview where they were asked about community issues and ideas as to how we could problem solve. All the children were amazing and a credit to their schools.
PC Thomas said: “Our team are looking forward to working with our new team members, please keep a look out for the mini police patrolling the local area.
“We’d like to thank the schools involved for their participation for this exciting project.”
Our newest crime-fighters will now choose their own policing priorities based on what is important to them and will partake in activities that make the community a safer place for everyone. Issues to be considered may include anti-social behaviour, sharing crime prevention advice in the community and speeding.
PCSO Nerys Williams said: “We’re happy to be able to welcome another class of mini police into North Wales Police. This scheme is a great opportunity for young people to play a role in making decisions in their community and gives them a sense of community pride.
“We look forward to working with the Mini Police on matters which are important to them in the community.”
The aim of the mini police project is to build positive relationships between North Wales Police and young members of the community.
Wish our mini police good luck in their new roles.
