Let the Laser Quest battles commence!
10 August 2017 Local News
Pupils from two Staffordshire schools have been invited to take part in Laser Quest battles with local officers as part of a project aimed at building stronger links between young people and the police.
PCSO Thomas Jennings from Newcastle-under-Lyme police station was awarded £975 for his project from the Newcastle Partnership.
PSCO Jennings, said: “We spend a lot of time and resource tackling anti-social behaviour and trying to bridge the link between young people and the police. I wanted to create a project which directly addressed this whilst also educating about local law enforcement, personal safety, current issues and increasing levels of reassurance for young people and their parents.
“The project will give young people the chance to build relationships with their local officers and highlight what it means to be a good citizen. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to get to know us and learn about what we do in the best possible way… with lasers!”
The project titled “Lasers and the Law” takes place on Friday 18 August at Laser Quest in Newcastle-under-Lyme between 10am and 4pm.
74 pupils from Wolstanton High School and Clayton High School, aged between 11 and 14, have signed up so far but there are still a few places left to anyone who wishes to join in the fun.
If you’d like to join in the laser fun, please contact PCSO Thomas Jennings on 07890 314724 to book your place now! Leave a message with your name, age and contact number. A one hour session at Laser Quest costs just £2.
