On Monday, police officer, PC Davis, visited our class to talk to us about knife crime and internet safety.
We learnt about ‘Joint Enterprise’. This is where more than one person takes part in a crime. If somebody is involved in or helps somebody else to commit a crime, they can be convicted as well.
We all learnt the slogan ‘Put down the knife, live your life.’ Many people are affected by these sorts of crimes, from children to adults. The officer told us if ever we are in an unsafe environment, we should leave immediately, get to somewhere safe and inform an adult. The age of criminal responsibility in England is 10 years old so it is important to know the laws and do the right thing.
We also discussed online safety and the laws surrounding it. Many apps have age restrictions. If you download the app, and you are younger than you say you are, you are committing fraud. Apps have age restrictions to protect children. If people are being bullied online and they report it to the police, they have a legal obligation to investigate the case. PC Davis gave us good advice about what to do if we are being bullied online and that we should never meet up with any strangers/people we do not know. Lastly, we must always inform our parents about what is happening.
It was a very informative visit and we learnt a lot.
