TEN Year 4 pupils from schools in Royston were treated to a visit to Hertfordshire Police headquarters in Welwyn Garden City.

Two children each from Roman Way, Icknield Walk, Studlands Rise, St Mary's and Tannery Drift schools made the trip, accompanied by Royston Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Alanna Robinson.

After arriving, the children were shown the police control room and met some of the police dogs.

They also enjoyed a picnic and a demonstration from police trainer Gary Moore, who showed the children how they used batons and handcuffs.
