THE police force’s youngest recruits have been taking the law into their own hands.
PCSOs Helen Whittingham and Andrew Knowles called in at Treetops Nursery in Flint to give the children an insight into the way police officers help people.
The law abiding children were able to get behind the wheel of the patrol car as they pretended they were responding to an emergency.
With the car’s blue lights flashing and sirens blaring the children wore police hats to get into character.
Nursery owner Sue Mills said: “As part of teaching the children about people who help us we wanted them to meet police officers.
“At first the children were a little shy but soon got into it when they tried on the hats and took it in turns to sit in the police car.
“They got a bit of an understanding about what police do for society.
“They understood that they should go to police officers if they lose their mummy or daddy.
“They also learned about what they do and how the police help people.”
