Local pupils witness declaration

Some Year 5 and 6 pupils from Gorseland Primary School in Martlesham attended the official swearing in of the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, Tim Passmore on Wednesday 21 November.

This was an historic occasion where members of Suffolk’s community were invited to the Police HQ at Martlesham to witness the declaration as Tim Passmore took office as the first PCC for Suffolk. Four pupils from the Gorseland’s school council were chosen to represent the young people of Suffolk.

Following the ceremony, the pupils were treated to a tour of Police Headquarters, which included the traffic unit and the control room.
