Cops take on new recruits in Dalston nursery
Police mascot visits Independent Place Nursery in Shacklewell Lane
The police took on new recruits when they visited youngsters at a Dalston nursery last Thursday (December 2).
Children from the Independent Place Nursery in Shacklewell Lane were invited to shake hands with police mascot PCSO Steve and try on officers’ uniform and equipment, when the Dalston Safer Neighbourhoods team dropped by.
For many of the children, it was the first time they had ever spoken to anyone from their local police team.
PCSO Tina Harvey, from Dalston Safer Neighbourhoods team, said: ‘It was very rewarding to visit the nursery; it gave us the opportunity to help the children understand who we are.
