Police share their powers with Rishton's young legal eagles
5:15pm Monday 15th October 2012 in News
STUDENTS were shown the strong arm of the law when officers visited a Rishton high school to talk about police powers.
As part of their GCSE law studies, Year 10 students at Norden High School and Sports College studied the police and criminal evidence act, focusing on the arresting powers of a police officer and the procedure of what happens when a defendant is arrested.
Insp Mulla and DS Dassow came into the Stourton Street school to speak to students about their roles within the police force.
Students Adam North and Callum Collard were given the opportunity to dress up in police uniforms and said they were shocked by the weight of it.
They also learned how important a uniform is to a police officer and the purpose that it plays.
