This edition it’s a family affair! Two generations of new recruits, a mother whose passion for the job has inspired her two daughters to join the force and two brothers who are pushing each other to be better officers.
You can read all about Verdun Buck who fought in the Second World War before policing the streets of Sutton and the remarkable legacy he left behind on page 10. His story came to light after his son set about tracking down replacement medals after his father’s originals were stolen.
West Midlands Police have re-launched their Top Trumps inspired card game ‘Cop Swops’ which feature caricatures of neighbourhood officers, rating them by ‘Police Power’, ‘rank’ and ‘speed’.
The game is designed to help children become more familiar with their local officers and comfortable approaching and chatting to them, while sharing some important safety messages.
The game was so popular last time that officers had children chasing them down the street asking them for cards!
Kind hearted cops around the country have been running marathons, cycling for miles and spinning, all in the name of charity.
We also have our usual round up of News, Technology and Charity.
