Grantham 'Mini Police' investigate mock crime scene

Pupils at National Junior School dressed up in protective white suits to investigate a mock crime scene at their school.

The 10 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils were nominated by their classmates to become mini police officers as part of a new Lincolnshire police scheme which sees nine to 11-year-old’s working alongside them.

As part of the fictitious burglary investigation, the mini police officers took blood swabs (red paint), looked for fingerprints and had to identify footprints.

Pupil premium manager Nina Ward said: “It’s all about community relations and giving something back.”

Since being elected last year, the mini police officers have also worked alongside the police on a variety of national and local topics including bullying and speeding.

PCSO Shannon tweeted: “Busy afternoon with our mini police team. Investigating a fictitious burglary, learning about and then using forensic science to identify the offender. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
