New safety officers take up post across Cheshire West
A new batch of junior safety officers (JSOs) from schools across Cheshire West and Chester are in place to help promote road, community and personal safety to pupils, staff, their families and the wider community.
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s road safety officers and Cheshire Constabulary have organised two events, at Winsford and Ellesmere Port, to sign up the children to their new role. Each school had been invited to nominate two Year 6 pupils as JSOs for this school year, with a 96% take up to date.
The role involves communicating monthly safety messages and organising competitions around messages from wearing bright clothes during the dark autumn and winter months, to providing advice about anti-social behaviour.
At the end of their year in office the JSOs who have made the biggest impact will be named Junior Safety Officers of the Year 2014/15.
Councillor Lynda Jones said: “Through the JSO initiative we are working in partnership to show the children how they can work together to get their school thinking about everything from Being Safe and Being Seen, to how to stay safe on the internet.
“The JSOs help us make a difference so that we make sure everyone stays safe and feels safe in the area where they live.”
