Welshpool Neighbourhood Policing Team has broadened its campaign to clamp down and prevent anti social behaviour in the town with an initiative targeting high school pupils.
Officers, in partnership with Welshpool High School, Powys Youth Service and Powys Youth Offending, spent two days working with 200 year 7 pupils on issues relating to Anti Social Behaviour.
Pupils went through six sessions covering the issues relating to anti social behaviour, its effects on the community and also its affects on those who behave in an anti social manner.
Facebook was also discussed due to internet safety and the new concern of cyber bullying.
A police spokesperson said: “The aim of these sessions was to challenge the young people to think about their behaviour and the effects that it has on others around them.”
CAPTION: Pictured with the team are three of the children who took part along with Mrs J Baines who helped to co-ordinate the sessions.
