Crime on the curriculum in Thirsk

[Thursday 15 June 2006]

CRIMEFIGHTERS have been back at school to pass on their expertise to students in one Dales town.

thirsk crime challenge

Members of the Hambleton Community Safety Partnership spent two days at Thirsk high school in the latest 'school challenge' event.

The pupils were given information on a wide range of topics related to crime and personal safety, including bogus callers, domestic abuse, anti social behaviour and safety when traveling.

And for the first time law and behaviour was on the menu with the teenagers asked to take a law quiz in order to explain simple procedures including the difference between civil and criminal law.

Each year members of the Partnership visit all the high schools in Hambleton to talk to 11 and 12 year olds on community safety issues.
