Pin It

The police helicopter crew surprised students from Savannah Primary School on Friday morning when the helicopter made an unannounced visit to the Bodden Town Civic Centre.

Students from the school were at the Centre to meet local police officers and learn all about what they do, when the helicopter broke off from routine patrol to give the youngsters a close up view of the chopper.

The crew spoke to the youngsters about the helicopter and Inspector Richard Harford talked about the roles and responsibilities of the police in the community.

Chief inspector Robert Scotland, the newly appointed Commander for the Eastern Districts, said; “The youngsters and their teachers had a great time today. They were obviously keen to learn all about the police and what we do. They were all very surprised when the helicopter arrived and they got a chance to see it up close.”

“This is just one of many activities planned for the Eastern Districts as part of our ongoing efforts to raise awareness of policing and of how people, young and old, can work with the RCIPS to help keep our communities safe,” added Inspector Richard Harford (pictured with the students).

Officers are working with schools in the area to develop an Eastern Districts Junior Police Academy. Further details of that event will be made available in due course.
