YEAR 4 pupils at Studlands Rise First School in Royston have been presented with certificates after successfully completing Hertfordshire police's Operation Citizenship programme.
Held over five weeks, Operation Citizenship is an extra-curricular course which aims to educate children about crime and the work of the emergency services through a series of fun exercises.
Almost all of the children took part and their efforts were rewarded as Royston's Youth and Schools Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Alanna Robinson handed out their certificates.
And two lucky children, Kaitlan Saward and Lewis Warner, will also get the chance to visit Herts Police headquarters in Welwyn Garden City next month, where they will get to see firearms, try on riot gear and meet some police dogs.
