Crime Prevention Education
The Wales Police Schools Programme provides a wrap-around service to schools in Wales offering crime prevention education and supportive policing services captured in the Programme’s strap line. The Schools Police officers deliver a series of Crime Prevention lesson deliveries and Supportive School Policing initiatives that aim to:
- Educate children and young people about the harm substance misuse can cause to their health, their families and the wider community
- Achieve a reduction in the levels of crime and disorder within our young communities.
They are also able to offer a wide variety of assembly presentations. The assemblies offer flexibility and ensure the WPSP keeps pace with emerging threats, trends and issues. A series of vlogs and other materials are also available on our dedicated SchoolBeat cymru website.
The Programme has a corporate approach to ensure that all children, 5 to 16 years old across Wales receive the same accurate and up to date information.
The SPOs work closely with Pastoral, Behaviour and Safeguarding leads in schools to support the newly developing Health and Well-being curriculum
SPOs also support schools through supportive policing practices; dealing with incidents using the School Crime Beat policy and offering restorative resolutions including restorative conferencing when required.

Powys County Council Youth Services Open Access.
The Open Access Youth Team offers a wide range of activities and opportunities to young people aged 11-25. The service is voluntary based and is open ended in nature. This means the youth workers are able to build a significant relationship with young people. This often gives the youth worker unique understanding of young people and a better knowledge to tailor their work to suit the individual needs. Over time this leads to positive outcomes and the empowering of young people to make informed decisions about their lives and futures.
The sessions are delivered by the 12-hour youth workers and are planned in conjunction with the schools. The school and community knowledge and intelligence feeds into this planning and responds to local need. These groups are formed around the needs of young people and are based around topical conversations, awareness days and any school-based issues that may have happened that week! There are drop-in sessions for young people during breaktimes and lunchtimes where young people can access the youth workers for advice and guidance on a range of issues or topics. They form close relationships with the Wellbeing and Pastoral departments in each school to ensure that the provision of support is targeted to the young people who need it most.
