Prestatyn: Cubs get visit from local officers

This article is old - Published: Friday, Mar 4th, 2016

A Prestatyn officer who has close links with a local Cub Scout group has been giving the youngsters an insight into life as a PCSO. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The importance of staying safe, stranger danger, crime prevention and anti-bullying messages have also been delivered to the Cubs as part of a series of visits by PCSO Laura Vaughan and other members of the local Neighbourhood Policing Team. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“This year marks the 100th celebration of the Cubs,” explained PCSO Vaughan. “As part of the efforts to mark the year, the Cubs have organised a variety of activities and events throughout 2016 and I’m really pleased to be able to support this. During our visits so far, the Cubs have had some basic personal safety training and we have also delivered talks of a range of issues including staying safe while out and about.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

As part of the work, PCSO Vaughan also succeeded in gaining a £200 grant from the Police And Community Trust (PACT). Part of the money has been spent on items such as waist and high visibility bands to help children and young people stay safe and for them to be seen during the dark evenings. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Half of the money has been awarded to the Cub Scout group and is to go toward buying new equipment. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
