New mini police group holds first meeting

Swaledale’s new mini police held their first session  this week.

The mini police scheme allows youngsters to dress up in uniforms and learn about policing issues, staying safe and undertaking some volunteering work.

The new members all attend Reeth and Gunnerside Schools.

A police spokesperson said: “We really enjoyed our first session getting to know each and every one of you, and look forward to working together in the future.”
