Police officers visited a Radlett school to teach the pupils about law and order as part of a new trust-building scheme.

Herts officers spoke to nine to 11-year-olds at Fair Field Junior School to build engagement within communities, promote responsible citizenship, and increase understanding of police procedures.

It is part of a new scheme called Mini Police which was started in Durham, trialled for eight weeks in Harpenden during April, and is now being rolled out to nominated schools around Hertfordshire.

Mini Police has been awarded funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner, David Lloyd.

He said: “This is a fantastic scheme which engages young people and gives them lots of training and information to keep them safe.”

Safer Neighbourhood Team officers PCSO William Ryan, PCSO Tim Conway and PC Dean Edwards delivered the session in Radlett.

PCSO Ryan said: “The first session went really well and it was great to see that the children seemed to enjoy it, showing a lot of enthusiasm and contributing throughout.”

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
