Congratulations to Lower Sixth student Maddie Conway who, along with her fellow volunteer Police Cadets, has won first place in this year’s National Crimebeat Awards.
The Awards recognise the most innovative and successful crime prevention projects carried out by young people between the ages of five and 25. Maddie and her team were nominated for their work with the Breck Foundation to raise awareness of online safety. It is not the first time their outstanding contribution in this area has been recognised – in November 2017 they also received a Lord Ferrers Award.
In order to celebrate ‘young people making safer communities’, the team was invited to attend the prestigious National Crimebeat Awards Ceremony on 18th April 2018. There they met with a number of key figures from the policing and crime prevention community including Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick.
