We have arranged for officers to patrol key areas around school times in the morning and afternoon and will be working closely with local schools to ensure pupils are aware of the risks of walking alone. While we do not want residents to be alarmed we would ask that parents remain vigilant, children walk to and from school in groups and if anyone sees anyone acting suspiciously to call police immediately.
