Mini Police enjoyed a special lunch

MERSEYSIDE Police's youngest recruits of the Mini Police have enjoyed a special lunch with senior Police Officers, as a reward for all their hard work. The Mini Police dined at Merseyside Police Headquarters with Deputy Chief Constable Carl Foulkes and Assistant Chief Constable Ian Critchley.

The pupils from Hatton Hill Primary School, in Litherland and St Monica's Primary School, in Bootle, have spent the last 4 months helping with speed awareness events, welcoming VIP guests, and even interviewing the Chief Constable. After the 2017 February half term, a new intake from both schools will join up as the new wave of Mini Police recruits.

The Mini Police were introduced in September 2016, at a spectacular launch event, which took place at Hatton Hill, where the children were visited by the National Police Air Support (NPAS) Helicopter and given demonstrations.

Deputy Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said:- "This lunch was the perfect chance to say thank you to our Mini Police for the brilliant work they have been involved in since September. They have been true ambassadors for both schools and their communities and we sincerely hope that for some of them, this is only the beginning of their journey with Merseyside Police."

Assistant Chief Constable Ian Critchley said:- "We are ever so proud of our Mini Police, and hope to grow this wonderful initiative far and wide in the coming years. They have demonstrated such enthusiasm, imagination and are proving to be a really positive force within our communities."

Mr Kinsella, Head Teacher at St Monica's, said:- "The opportunity to represent St Monica's beyond the school gate and throughout the city has been fabulous. They have achieved a huge amount for young people and the experience will set a culture which they will take into their teenage years."

Mrs James, Head Teacher at Hatton Hill, said:- "We have enjoyed seeing the children engaging with the public and learning that the police are a force for good in society.
