TWO community support officers are going back to school in Swaffham to increase police presence and encourage students to voice any worries.

Members of the town's Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will make regular patrols at Hamond's High School on Brandon Road.

PCSOs Michelle Thurlow and Hazel Tampin will be deployed to show a high-visibility presence around the grounds, allowing pupils to gain quick access to neighbourhood police and get to know their local officers.

Students will be able to speak to the officers in confidence about any community concerns.

Swaffham inspector Ady Porter said: 'Two officers have been appointed to the high school to build on positive relationships between the school, youngsters and the police. They will regularly visit the school so that youngsters can talk directly to the officers about neighbourhood issues.'

Headteacher Stuart Bailey said: 'The presence of the SNT at our school will be of benefit to us all. It is a clear demonstration to our students and parents of the fact that we are all working together for the same aim - a better, safer community.'
