Fearless teams up to fight serious organised crime
A hard-hitting DVD is being screened to schools across the Lothian and Borders police force area to deter youngsters from serious organised crime. [26 August 2011]
Lothian and Borders Police have created the educational film to highlight the dangers of becoming involved with crime groups as part of their continued drive to tackle the impact of organised crime groups on our communities.
The DVD, entitled “The Slide” is the first of its kind and was commissioned after the Scottish Government published their “Letting Our Communities Flourish” document – a four-pronged campaign to reduce the impact of serious organised crime across Scotland. All secondary school children from S2 and above in the Lothians will be shown the five-segment film, which depicts one young person's descent into a life of crime and drug addiction after he becomes involved with serious organised crime.
An additional training package has also been developed as a training tool for adults who work with our children in youth clubs and voluntary organisations.
The launch took place on 25 August 2011 at Castlebrae Community High School in Edinburgh whose pupils and staff have been heavily involved in the production of the DVD
