Budding Bobbies Share Safety Tips With Women In Batley

Tuesday January 30, 2024

Budding bobbies in Kirklees have shared safety tips with women in Batley after taking part in a day to help them better spot scams.

Members of the Kirklees Police cadets said they had been privileged to attend at the Baitul Atta Mosque in Batley as part of activity across the force for Neighbourhood Policing Week.

The cadets spoke along with Cadet leader PC Sally Baines, spoke to the Mosque's Women's Group and invited guests from the local community about their Safe Tea project.   

The project helps educate older people about frauds and scams in the form of a bag of leaflets and crime prevention items, and was funded by the Mayor's Safer Communities fund.

They also attended to celebrate World Hijab Day (which takes place on 1st Feb), learn about  Hijabs, and listened to members of the Mosque speak about their own hijab experiences before trying them on themselves.

The cadets also engaged with younger girls and children at the event and were treated to home cooked curry.

Police Cadet Mia Barrett said " This was such a lovely event to be invited to and I really enjoyed it. It was really interesting to learn about hijabs and to try one on was a real privilege" 

PC Sally Baines said "We would like to thank the Ladies Group for inviting us to celebrate World Hijab Day and welcoming us into their Mosque."
