Police Crime Commissioner Visits City College

28 November 2017 | College News, Public Services

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall, Alison Hernandez, visited City College Plymouth to speak to students studying for a Foundation Degree in Public Services.

Ms Hernandez gave a presentation on the Police and Crime Plan as well as taking questions from the students, many of whom have ambitions to work for the police force.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Alison Hernandez, said: “It was wonderful to meet the students at the College in order to share the details of our Police and Crime Plan and how we are working to support our communities here in the South West. I am aware many of them are considering a career in the police force, so I hope I have been able to give them an insight into what the future of our sector looks like.”

Maureen Alderson, Programme Leader for Foundation Degree in Public Services, said: “We have good working relationships with our public services, so our students often benefit from an insider’s view of what it is like to work in organisations like the fire, ambulance or police services. This, however, was a great opportunity for them to hear directly from someone leading their sector. The Police and Crime Commissioner plays an important role in the region’s safety and it was invaluable for our students to understand how that is managed and where the police are really focusing their efforts at the strategic level.”

Those interested in pursuing a career in the public services can find out more about the full and part-time courses, including Apprenticeships, the College offers at their Course Information Drop-in at Kings Road on Wednesday 6 December, 4.30pm to 6.30pm.
