YOUNG people in North Somerset could win an iPad by collecting crime prevention cards from the police.
There are six cards to collect, which carry crime prevention and safety messages, and were designed by children from Gordano School, Portishead Primary School and Ferngate Children’s Home in Portishead
The cards provide key advice on topics such as antisocial behaviour, internet safety and keeping bikes and mobile phones safe.
Beat officers and PCSOs in the district will be carrying the cards throughout the summer holidays and if you collect more than three you could win an iPad Mini by sending them into Nailsea Police Station.
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “This swapsie card project is a great way for neighbourhood officers and PCSOs to get to know the children and young people in their area and provides a genuine reason for them to interact.
“The cards also help the police to give out some really important safety advice for young people, particularly around personal safety and on-line safety.
“We know that of all the demographics, young people are most likely to be a victim of crime and it’s vital we help them stay safe.”
