|Vandalism & Consequences|
Here we raise the children's awareness of the consequences of vandalism, for them and for others. Awareness of vandalism is a constant theme throughout the Safety Centre. A specific scenario depicts an anti-vandalism message. This is shown as a video, which is filmed against a Milton Keynes background, using local school aged pupils to deliver far-reaching messages. The substation scenario reminds children of the dangers of electricity and how to report any incidents of vandalism.

These sessions directly reinforce the messages given at the Centre whilst encouraging community safety and citizenship. They are specifically designed to encourage children to change their behaviour towards taking responsibility. If you are interested in any of the lessons below please contact the Schools Liaison Team.
Other follow-up sessions are available on request from the School Liaison team e.g. Arson, Knife Crime and Electrical Safety.
