Children give crime prevention lessons in Swindon

A pilot scheme is being launched in Swindon which will see young volunteers delivering crime prevention messages to pupils in schools.

The Swindon Youth Offending Team and Holy Family Catholic Primary School are partners in the project.

Twelve volunteers aged between 10 and 19 will visit local schools and offer lessons on crime prevention to pupils.

Training of the volunteers began in June, and pilot lessons have begun in schools which have agreed to take part.
