The Chief Constable was taken on a guided tour of Falcon House, by the Deputy Head of Provision, visiting classrooms and teaching facilities, the engagement of the students impressed the distinguished guest speaker, Craig, with his positive comments about the student’s engagement were much appreciated when he met with the management team to further discuss career opportunities for young people.

The students were treated to the opportunity of seeing and respectfully listening to the distinguished visitor. Craig empowered the teenagers with thoughts of career opportunities of both policing and non-policing career structures within the Nottinghamshire Police Force. From a leading question, Craig, also pointed out that one of the biggest risks to young adults was knife crime, stating that when a teenager took a knife out with them, this invariably increased the risk of them getting stabbed and was in fact a greater than the perceived protection a knife offered them.
