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.”
