Don't Be Tricked

The Don’t Be Tricked Campaign is a joint project between Gloucestershire Constabulary and Lakers School to educate the community on different types of doorstep and internet crime.

A vital part of our job is to educate the public in different aspects of crime prevention and offer ways to improve security within their own homes to insure peace of mind in everyday living.

The Forest LPT, in the last two years, has been assisted by drama students from Lakers School to achieve this. The students are educated in the different types of doorstep crime and internet scams by the local community team, who then, with the professional guidance of the teaching staff at the school put on several short plays in order to demonstrate these scenarios.

The plays have been put on at a number elderly housing community centres within Coleford and Lydney in 2013/2014 and have been very successful and have received a lot of positive feedback. As a result, the Forest South Community Team and Lakers School have now been asked if the shows can be put on at Coleford Community Café and we are delighted to announce that we will be at the café on the 9th December 2014, doors opening at 10.30am for an 11.00am start.

All are welcome. There is disabled access at the venue and there will be refreshments available to purchase also. The police and other agencies will also be there to answer any questions you may have regarding the subject matter or any other issues you may want to talk to us about.

Heart of the Forest Prom

James Bowkett and Hannah Byett both attend the Heart of The Forest Special Needs school. 

It has been James' dream to go to his prom in a police car. After lots of planning, his dream became a reality, when PCSO's Peter Timmins and Dawn Teague pulled some strings and took James and his date Hannah to their prom arriving in style.

There is a strong community link between the school and the two Officers as they have been attending there for a number of years teaching the children, with varying disabilities, road safety.

James and his family were really grateful to the two Officers and to the Constabulary for making James's dream a reality.
