Fascinating Guests

Criminology course students welcome local professionals to Westholme 

The Criminology Course has welcomed some fascinating guests again this year. We are so lucky that local professionals are willing to give their time to come and talk to us. The Year 11 and Sixth Form have learnt so much in these sessions about various aspects of crime.

On Thursday 20th November we welcomed Dave Ward from Lancashire Constabulary. Sergeant Ward has served in a number of roles within the Constabulary during his time as an officer but currently he is a member of the Counter Terrorism Team. This team are extremely busy at present working on prevention and protecting the local community. He talked of various cases he has been involved in and one thing is for sure, no two days are ever the same!

On Thursday 27th November Dave Bland, Head of Reducing and Reoffending at HMP Kirkham came to talk to the students. He talked to us about the workings of the prison system and the opportunities that prisoners are given whilst in custody and on release. He talked about his role as a prison officer and the students were extremely keen to ask him lots of pertinent questions.
