A book aimed at educating children on crime prevention and community safety is being used in North East Derbyshire.
The North East Derbyshire Community Safety Partnership has donated the ‘Cops and Robbers’ book to libraries to help keep youngsters safe.
The book features Officer Pugh who is on the trail of a gang of crooks who prowl around a town on the lookout for things to steal.
North East Derbyshire District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Councillor Lilian Robinson, said: “It’s important we reach children at this young age with positive messages as this early intervention also helps them to gain the necessary skills to make good decisions on what is right and wrong.
“The book is an additional tool to help deter children from becoming involved in any criminal activityand although it is delivered in a fun and memorable way it does get across the message that crime does not pay.”
