praised for crime-busting DVD
PUPILS have been praised
for producing a DVD designed to highlight the devastating impact of
Lancashire's Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw will visit
All Saints C of E Primary School, in Clayton-le-Moors, Accrington,
on Friday, 26 April 26013, to meet the youngsters who have devised
the crime-fighting film.
The DVD; which involves the school's year 6 pupils; tells the story
of Freddie who is pressured by friends into spraying graffiti at
school and shows his subsequent arrest, police interview and the
impact his behaviour has on him, his family and the community.
Tackling anti-social behaviour is one of the commissioner's key
priorities, and he will present the pupils involved with
certificates alongside Chief Superintendent Bob Eastwood.
Clive Grunshaw said:- "I am delighted to have the opportunity
to meet with the pupils from All Saints C of E Primary School. They
are to be applauded for their work to raise awareness about
anti-social behaviour (ASB) among young people, and the impact it
can have not only on them but on those around them. ASB can have a
serious detrimental impact on victims; raising their fear of crime
and affecting their quality of life. Lancashire Constabulary has a
good performance record in tackling ASB but we are not complacent
and improvements can always be made."
Divisional Commander for Eastern Division, covering Blackburn with
Darwen, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley Chief Superintendent Bob
Eastwood said:- “This is a fantastic and creative way for
children to learn about the consequences of anti social behaviour.
It was a fantastic way to engage with children whilst allowing them
to highlight important issues. We know the devastating impact anti
social behaviour can have on a community. It really concerns people
and makes them feel less safe. Our neighbourhood policing teams are
committed to taking action to improve the quality of life for
members of the local community. Where it does happen they will work
closely with agencies such as the Council and the housing
association to tackle the issue.”
Ian Spencer, head teacher at the school, said:- "It is a
fantastic opportunity to strengthen the link that exists between the
police and the school and I'm very proud of the children for the
hard work they have put into the DVD."
Anyone concerned or wanting help with Anti-social behaviour can
