Children from across the Scottish Borders are taking part in workshops to teach them life skills.
The Crucial Crew event, which is in its 20th year, sees Primary 7 children take part in scenarios where they have to identify potential hazards and are required to respond as if they were real-life.
It is designed to help young people to cope with dangerous situations, avoid becoming the victims of crime and understand the roles of the emergency services.
This year, Crucial Crew runs from 18th September to 5th October at Eildon Mill in Tweedbank. It is organised by Lothian and Borders Police and the Scottish Borders Safer Community Partnership.
