The Police Tutor


In a new initiative, pupils at the schools in Bigastro will benefit from the presence of a Police Tutor.

Two members of the local police force have been assigned to this task which has several objectives:-

  • To support the schools and the parents of the children
  • To control the behaviour of pupils
  • To reduce absenteeism
  • To reduce incidences of bullying
  • To monitor security and traffic around the schools
  • To enhance pupil awareness of civic issues and promote respect for the norms of our society

Whilst I was at Anfield, we had a community policeman attached to the school. He had a difficult role to play balancing familiarity with the pupils and respect for his position. It seemed that whenever we needed him, he was away on a course.

Along with the two members of the police force In the picture are: the Councillor for Education, Mª Dolores Andreu; the Councillor for Citizen Security, Inmaculada Martínez, the Director of the San José de Calasanz School, Salomón Rivera and the Mayor of Bigastro, Raúl Valerio Medina.
