Students discover the force is with them


A GRADUATION ceremony at Leven’s Adam Smith College campus has signalled the end of a six-week community policing course.

Over the past few weeks, a diverse range of students, aged between 16 and 70, attended the course to gain a better insight into police work, either for those looking to join the force or interested in its current role.

The graduation was attended by Deputy Chief Constable Andrew Barker who was also joined by executive director of Adam Smith College, Christine Sinclair.

DCC Barker highlighted the reasons for Fife Constabulary running the course as implementing a way of bringing the community closer to local policing as a further method to complement Fife Constabulary’s 2011-15 policing plan.

All the students in attendance were presented with a certificate, watched over and supported by their friends and families.

Community inspector, Mike Collins, said: “I’d like to thank all the participating students on the course for their commitment and enthusiasm over the last six weeks.

“It has been an enjoyable experience for everyone involved in the planning, delivery and participation on the course.”

The next programme will take place in north east Fife area. Details of the course and how to apply will soon be available on the Fife police website.
