PUPILS at Hall Cross Upper School had the chance to see a police drugs dog in action during a visit to their school.
Children and Young Persons Officer PC Emma Bloodworth organised an assembly after she receiving reports that young people were using drugs in the area.
Over 300 Year 11 pupils saw the drugs dog sniff out cannabis that had been planted on a volunteer. PC Bloodworth showed the students how they would do a search for the drugs on the volunteer, and he was cuffed and taken away. They spoke to the pupils about the consequences of taking drugs and the law.
Officers also spoke to the students about knife crime and the laws around carrying knives.
