Police Community Support Officers Alex Franklin and Lukasz Wojcik are visiting Brooke Weston to talk about community issues including hate crime, anti-social behaviour and human trafficking.
In one of a series of talks, PCSO Franklin gave a presentation on immigration and hate crime to Year 9 citizenship students, which was followed by a question and answer session. ‘We are trying to make young people aware of the myths and facts regarding immigration. Britain has basically welcomed those from other nations for many years and over the years you have little pockets of problems. We are just trying to open people’s eyes to what does go on and put them right about any misconceptions they may have … People want to come here to work, live their own lives and integrate in the community.’
PCSO Franklin, who has also spoken about knife crime to students in Years 10 and 11, will return to Brooke Weston to deliver an assembly on anti-social behaviour.
