WSC stay safe on the roads campaign1

Suffolk Constabulary stepped talked to students in Bury St Edmunds about the importance of being safe and responsible on the roads.

The two hour socially distanced session took place just outside the main campus of West Suffolk College with around 30 students who are currently on BTEC policing and public services courses.

During the visit, three traffic police officers talked about their professional experiences and gave advice to several groups.

This visit came on the back of an annual police drink and drug-driving crackdown launch at the start of December.

Head of this Policing and Public Services at the college, Clare Fasey, said: “We are delighted to have created a strong relationship with the Suffolk Constabulary who visit us throughout the year and we are grateful for their support. Many of our learners will go on and become the police force of the future, therefore for them to hear from those currently working in the industry makes their dreams of joining the force become that more real.”

”The lessons they learnt in relation to staying safe on the road were invaluable.”

Jess Head, 18 from Bury, said: “I’ve just passed my driving test so the information was very timely. The information I gained will be useful in terms of the policing course that I am studying on. The one message I took away from this is be sensible.”

Connor Sturman, 16 from Thetford, said: “We learnt about driving laws and punishments and heard stories from the police about their experiences on the roads. It was an eye opener.”

Sergeant Julian Ditcham, from Suffolk Constabulary, said: “We want people to stay safe. That was the overall message we want the students at West Suffolk College, and indeed everyone else, to take away from our campaign.”
