Between 17 and 20 February, two windows were smashed at Camdean Primary School, Rosyth. A 13-year-old boy has been charged with this offence, and in a separate incident a 21-year-old man was charged with vandalising a vehicle on James Miller Road, Rosyth between 12 and 13 February 2012.

Officers from the Community Team, Proactive Team and Response Teams collaborated, carrying out extensive enquiries and making use of valuable information provided to police from members of the public.
Local Community Constable Stevie Smith said: “Local officers are working hard to ensure that local people feel safe and secure and my colleagues and I have developed a good relationship with young people around Rosyth. We will not allow this work to be spoiled by a small minority of people committing mindless vandalism.”
Local Community Sergeant Tony Rogers said: “I would like to remind those involved in such acts of the knock-on effects of their behaviour. Joiners, janitors, cleaners, teachers and most importantly school pupils are disrupted when damage such as that seen at Park Road Primary School occurs. Add to that the obvious financial impact on local authorities and subsequent police investigations, and it is clear that this is detrimental to the community as a whole.
“I would like to thank local parents for their cooperation and assistance in dealing with these recent matters, and to take another opportunity to ask that anybody, particularly parents, who have information regarding similar crimes ensure that it is passed to police.
