A murmur of excitement rippled up and down the corridors of Bourne Elsea Park C of E Primary Academy on Tuesday 19th October 2021 as PCSO Possnett entered the building. Why was a member of the Lincolnshire Police visiting our school? To launch this year’s Mini Police scheme of course! For a second time children were being given the chance to join the many other representatives of Pupil Voice in the school by becoming a Mini Police Ambassador, whereby forging vital links between the school, the local community, and the Police. As he led an assembly to explain the role of the Mini Police Ambassadors, he described his role as a PCSO in the community, the role that the children would play, what qualities they would need and how they could apply to take on the position. When asked who would like to be a Mini Police Ambassador, a rush of hands rose to show a huge amount of enthusiasm for the job and ideas were already rushing around of persuasive speeches, posters and poems that were going to be written to show that they had the qualities necessary to take on the position. When the final voting has taken place, the candidates have been selected and equipped with their uniform and Mini Police packs, they will take on various exciting projects over the next two years, ranging from Acts of Kindness, Fatal Four, and Digital Resilience to Safer Strangers and Anti-social behaviour. So, if you want to feel safer on your streets or know how to be wise to a scam, look no further than your local Mini Police Ambassador!
