‘FORTUNE TELLER’ LAUNCHED TO TACKLE ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
By Corporate Communication Dept


THIS month sees the launch of a new initiative aimed at educating children and young people about anti-social behaviour.

The new ‘fortune tellers’ – a teaching aid which children make themselves – encourage children to answer questions on topics such as trespassing, graffiti and criminal damage.

Designed for children around the age of 11, it teaches useful facts about how anti-social behaviour can affect others.

The new ‘fortune tellers’ were launched last week at Birchwood Primary School in Hatfield.

Hatfield Community Team’s PCSO Nina Smith said: “This is a great resource which will be used in many schools across Hertfordshire.

“It is important that we explain to children and young people about different types of anti-social behaviour and their consequences. We hope the fortune tellers will make the subject more interesting and fun for young people to learn about.”

Officers across the county will be visiting schools around Hertfordshire with the ‘fortune tellers’ during this term.

They will also be available over the coming weeks on the force’s website at www.herts.police.uk so that children can download and make them at home.
