Bournville and Oldmixon One Team are committed to placing the communities we serve as a priority when making decisions on what areas to tackle.
Thursday 31st October, 2019
We aim to be a constant presence in our areas, to spend time with our communities so we can get to know you, and in turn for you to get to know us. By knowing and supporting each other, we can help to build relationships, gather intelligence and help the community to build their confidence so they can be safe and feel safe.
Current community schemes/activates
We look forward to working with our mini police throughout the year and for them to start to make positive influences in their communities. Fell done mini’s, you are all amazing!
In partnership with SWAN, 4 of our Police Community Support Officers alongside a SWAN representative and a youth worker took a group of 25 kids out for the day to Wookie Hole Caves. The 25 kids were chosen by their schools as a rewards for good behaviour and achievement. The day was a huge success and fun was had by all.
The Mini Police is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for children age 9-11 years old.
We aim to increase children and families confidence in the Police and enable young people to have a confident voice and an enjoyable experience associated with policing.
Y5 children from Bournville Primary School kids have now applied and 20 of them now hold the positions.
The scheme has now been launched. The launch took place in the school. The whole of Bournville and Oldmixon One team, Police Dogs, Police horses, The Mayor and, community workers, Year 5, the mini police, mini police friends and families and school staff all took part in the day.
It was an amazing day and there was lots of excitement around the new mini police roles.
The event was covered by both local and national news. We look forward to working with our mini police throughout the year and for them to start to make positive influences in their communities. Fell done mini’s, you are all amazing!
