School road safety initiative pops up
On Monday, officers from the Newton Stewart Community Policing Team launched a new road safety initiative with the assistance of Penninghame and St Ninian’s primary schools.
The initiative will feature newly acquired “Pop-up Bairns” which will be used, with the assistance of pupils, in forthcoming joint school traffic patrols.
Schools wishing to to take part should email PC Colin McMillan at [email protected]
He said: “With the return to school following the relaxation of Covid restrictions it is important to remind children of the everyday hazards on and around the roads and how to safely navigate them.”
