Police in Salford have recruited pupils from Irlam Primary School to help in the fight against crime.

Four pupils are the first in the city to become Junior Police Community Support Officers (PCSO).

As part of their role they will join Greater Manchester Police’s PCSO Mark Fitzgerald on patrol around the school at dropping off and picking up time to warn parents about parking in dangerous places.

PCSO Mark Fitzgerald said: “The pupils will really help to drive home the message that dangerous parking and inappropriate parking is putting children’s lives at risk. By adopting this new approach we hope to raise even more awareness and change parking habits.

“As the scheme develops and the pupils become more confident I plan to start taking them to crime prevention days and Home Watch events. They will learn some of the safety advice that we give out which they can then pass on to teachers and fellow pupils to help them stay safe.”

The Salford South Neighbourhood Policing Team can be contacted on 0161 586 5317 or salfordsouth.neighbourhood@gmp.police.uk.

People can contact police with information on 101, the new national non-emergency number.

Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers is an independent charity that will not want your name, just your information. Your call will not be traced or recorded and you do not have to go to court or give a statement.
