For the second year running, West Midlands Police’s Longbridge neighbourhood team have invited youngsters to take part in a Young Citizens Challenge.

Last year’s successful event at Waseley Hills Country Park saw around 200 year 6 pupils from local schools attended the event. Last year’s event organiser Acting Sergeant Karl Pierpoint said: “They were given personal safety messages from numerous providers and worked their way around 8 different scenarios, each providing a safety message.”

This year, PCSO Floody has continued the event and has opened it up to more schools and agencies. Agencies involved include:

  • West Midlands Police,
  • West Mercia Police,
  • West Midlands Fire Service
  • Hereford and Worcester Fire Service
  • Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP)
  • British Transport Police
  • and more….

The event will run for two days and all schools across the ward have been invited.
