Chief Constable school visit, Plymouth

 

Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer goes back to school tomorrow, Thursday 19 September.

Mr Sawyer will be meeting children and staff at Hele’s School in Plymouth to discuss current issues important to young people and explore emerging ways to enhance engagement with the next generation.

The day will comprise of several focus groups and discussing students views on the police and where they see law enforcement in the future.

Mr Sawyer will also be meeting teachers and classroom assistants to understand the complexities of teaching.

Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said: “Growing up in the 21st century is tough and although this generation is being raised in one of the safest areas of the UK, we must be realistic that they are growing up with the threat of online grooming, bullying, extremism and rising knife crime.

“One of the biggest challenges for police work involving young people is our relationship with them. Policing is continually changing and I want to engage with young people so we can shape the police service to better support and protect them, and to make policing more relevant to them.

“Our society is socially mobile through technology and we must keep up-to-date with our communities and evolve with them.

“I am hoping that my visit to Hele’s school gives me the opportunity to listen, learn and have an open and honest dialogue with both pupils and teaching staff.

“The way in which we engage with and learn from young people today will create the relationships we have with our communities in the future.”

Hele’s School, which is part of a family of 18 schools under Westcountry Schools Trust, welcomes the Chief Constable for the day.

Rob Haring, CEO of Westcountry Schools Trust, said: “In many ways the current generation of young have more opportunity in life. The wider world is more accessible and access to information and networks is greater than ever before.

“In contrast, if appropriate actions aren’t taken, our children can be exposed to greater risk and pressure to conform.

“By forging a strong partnership of support around our young people we will be able to listen, build understanding and trust, identify needs and take steps to mitigate the risks to which they are exposed.

“Our schools continue to build on the good relationship they have with the police.”
