Vandalism & Consequences

alt

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.

 

Key Teaching Points

1) Criminal damage and the effects on both individual and the wider community

The Safety Centre opened in 1994 as a partnership-based community safety project involving Thames Valley Police, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, health authorities, local government, other statutory organisations and the private sector. The centre is not centrally funded and as such relies heavily on donations and sponsorship.
