“It is always a pleasure to celebrate success and I am thrilled to congratulate the School Community Police Officers who have achieved the higher education qualification. Working in partnership with Trinity Saint David, Swansea, the Officers have gained vital skills and increased their understanding of how to effectively engage with children and young people in the classroom. In turn, their expertise will help the AWSLCP achieve its dual aims of safeguarding and helping to keep the children of Wales out of the Criminal Justice System.”
