Well done to Sergeant Kristy Philllips and her team of schools officers who have been running a fantastic Junior Citizen event in Redbridge.
The Redbridge Safer Schools Team held their annual Junior Citizen event between 16-20 May. This is a scheme offered to all Year 6 children in the area and designed to to help them prepare for what is often a daunting transition to secondary school and their new responsibilities as young people.
On Friday May 20, Redbridge Mayor Councillor Roy Emmett attended the event that saw two local schools come down and be part of the special activities hosted by local schools officers. There were presentations by police officers,the London Fire Brigade and Safer Transport Officers.
This is a great scheme run by East Area officers who really play a big role in our community not only tackling crime but also undertaking in vital projects such as these to help our youngsters. The pupils were able to learn important tips for being safe on public transport, on our streets and other useful information needed to help them make the big jump from Year 6 to Year 7.
The overall key message was ‘Be Smart and Stay Safe’.
Well done to Sergeant Phillips and her team of schools officers and Community Chief Inspector Louise Jackson for attending the session to give her support to this important project. Great work by all.
