EAST Bierley school children got a glimpse of the long arm of the law when two PCSOs paid a special visit.

Spen police PCSOs Jane Sturgess and Sanda Jaganjac let the pupils try on their uniforms and showed them the walkie-talkies they use every day.

Headteacher Marcus Newby said the children got a valuable insight into the work of the police.

They were also asked to design a new uniform for the PCSOs, who will be returning to the school today to judge the winners.

Mr Newby said: “The children asked the officers good questions and they told the children about chasing and catching robbers behind a supermarket.”
