Lunch Time Drop in Session and School Engagement at Glossopdale School & Sixth Form (15/05/24)

Glossop SNT – Youth Engagement 


PCSO Buller from Glossop YET (Youth Engagement Team) and PCSO Catchpole from Hadfield SNT were at Glossopdale School & Sixth Form, Newshaw Lane, Hadfield this afternoon – Wednesday 15th May, as part of our monthly drop-in sessions at local secondary schools.


The visit today in addition to our being available for students to meet and engage with the Police in a less formal manner, but also to promote ‘Operation Sceptre’ - The Police National Knife Crime Awareness Week, which runs twice a year. 

By attending schools this helps to stop, prevent and hopefully deter anyone from carrying a knife - therefore making young people feel safe and through their education, about the dangers and potential impact on their future, that prevention is better than the cure. 


We also took the opportunity to ask students to complete some Derbyshire Alert surveys, which have been specifically designed for young people , during each of the year lunch breaks.




These surveys allowed the students to answer a few questions about where they live and how safe they do or don’t feel etc.
