School Links Officers support RRED

PC Jimmy Dee is a school link officer in West Edinburgh. He works in secondary schools with teachers, parents and local communities to provide ‘diversionary and preventative work’ which will reduce the likelihood of young people becoming the perpetrators or victims of crime. He is one of twelve link officers covering all the secondary schools. The schools link officers are the result of a successful pilot between City of Edinburgh Council and Police Scotland (formerly Lothians and Borders Police). PC Dee welcomes the RRED campaign. He said ‘I am very keen to support RRED because we see the harmful effects of these drinks on children’s behaviour outside school as well as in the classroom’. PC Jimmy Dee has already spoken to local retailers about becoming RRED shops. Visits will take place shortly, watch this space!.
