Service users from Al’s Place, a disability day centre in Prescot, got the chance to speak with local police and learn more about how to keep safe as part of Talk About Tuesday.

Representatives from Merseyside Police and Knowsley Council provided the services users with a tour of one the police carriers.

After the visit, service users entered an art competition for which they each created a picture of the emergency services. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place received a large Easter Egg while all service users were given a crème egg or chocolate bunny for taking part.

To announce the winners, Merseyside Police and Knowsley Council visited Al’s Place. During the visit, service users were given the opportunity to ask questions and were provided with information on how to contact the police and when.

The service users really enjoyed engaging with the officers and were given important advice to help keep them safe.

Sgt Nicola Parsons at Knowsley Council, said: “Getting out and meeting residents in our communities is a very important part of what we do. It allows us to engage with people and give them an opportunity to learn about our work and how we keep our borough safe.

“The service users at Al’s Place had a great time meeting the offices and seeing a police carrier up close. It provided some fantastic inspiration for the art competition.”
