The Isle of Man Constabulary are offering a week of work experience for up to 15 Year 10 students during the first week of the school summer holidays, week commencing July 25.
PC Mike Griffiths said: ‘We offer a week of experience once a year as we are unable to offer meaningful experience during the weeks that the schools go out separately.
‘We like to give students an overview of most of the departments within the force and have found that the week in the summer holidays accommodates this really well.’
Students will gain an insight into neighbourhood policing, the dog unit, Financial Crime Unit, Custody, Joint Control Room, Youth Justice Team, CID, Community Policing, Roads Policing Unit.
‘This is a great opportunity to find out how the Police operate, and what situations we have to deal with on a daily basis. This week of work experience is invaluable for any Year 10 student who is considering a career in the Police’ added PC Griffiths.
