Local Area Commander’s Bulletin

Local Community Police Officer, Robbie Blackhall was joined by Police Officers from our Roads Policing and Mountain Rescue departments at Alyth Primary School recently.

PC Blackhall spoke to the Primary 1 class about the general role of a Police Officer before the pupils learned about how our Mountain Rescue trained officers and Roads Policing officers help people. The children engaged really well and asked lots of questions however they especially loved seeing all our equipment and putting the lights and sirens on in the Police cars.
