Emergency 999

Today as part of our emergency 999 topic, Butterworth, Potter and Hargreaves had some special visitors.  PCSO Rachel and Mandy from Ware Police Station came to visit to tell us all about their roles.

We learnt about the clothes they wear.  They wear a high visibility jacket so that they can be seen clearly.  In this jacket they keep a radio which they use to talk to other Police Officers.  We were lucky enough to listen to someone talking over the radio.  Mandy and Rachel also wear strong boots because they do lots of walking.

As part of their job they help to stop people stealing from shops.  They check people are keeping their handbags safe whilst they are shopping.  Mandy and Rachel also talk to the elderly and children in schools.  They help people who have lost things and use the CCTV and town link radio to find out what is happening in the town centre.

We enjoyed listening to Rachel and Mandy and we asked them lots and lots of questions!


  1. What a useful visit. I still remember a similar visit by the police to my primary school and it's good to read of my daughter enjoying the same.

    Thanks for the blog.

  2. So glad to see that the PCSOs come to school. It is so important the children get to know and respect them as people and learn about the law. Well done Years 1 and 2.

  3. We enjoyed giving the talk :) From Mandy and Rachel
