Year 1 Criminology students attended an Annual SAFE AWARD, 2019 Event at Police HQ last week, where senior police including Police Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite, Detective Superintendent Mat Newman, Chief Inspector Steve Kerridge and many more Police of varying ranks from across the county joined students from 4 different schools/Colleges.
This is the third year of the Award, where Police present information to students around key issues that the force faces in today’s world. Students then return to college and put together their own presentations in a competition, before presenting to a range of others, e.g. Graphics students. The Graphics students use the content to produce appropriate materials for spreading the word to fellow students. Previous year’s winning posters have also been used around the county, covering topics such as the Prevention of Bike Crime and Domestic Abuse.
This year’s topic is Modern Day Slavery and Criminology students who were present are keen to pass the message on about how to spot and help prevent such crimes. Course Team Leader Tom Genillard, and Head of Progression, Andy Goodwin, were both very impressed by the maturity shown by our students as they engaged with other delegates on the day and they look forward to the materials they produce.
