The Mini Police is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for Year 5 and 6 children, and during their time they will carry out duties including road safety awareness, award ceremonies and helping out their communities.
Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy said: “Over the last year, the Mini Police have proven to be fantastic ambassadors for Merseyside Police and I am delighted that the Force is now in a position to expand this really worthwhile initiative to six new schools across the region.
“The young people in the scheme have brought enthusiasm, excitement and bundles of energy to everything they have been involved in and I have no doubt that these new students will also be an asset to the Force.

This afternoon @merseypolice very own Mini Police for St Helens were outside of @thattoprim teaching drivers about road safety to and from school.
The mini police made up of Y5 and Y6 children from the school were joined by St Helens Local Policing Team 3 where they made use of the speed camera device. They also stopped passing members of the public to hand out leaflets about road safety and offer their very own advice about the dangers of parking and speeding near to the school.
We would like to thank all of the children involved in the event who were a credit to their school and community.
