West Midlands Police Heritage Project staff visit QAC Students

Recently, as part of our Criminal Justice project, we invited police staff Corinne Brazier and Steve Rice from the West Midlands Police Heritage Project to QAC to inform our students about policing over the years; they brought in lots of police memorabilia including a police cape and shackles.

Students learnt a great deal about being an officer in the 1800s and beyond and also about the constraints that Police officers faced and had to work within. There were lots of questions from students about how they could become police officers, also being given the chance to try out the various capes, hats, handcuffs and torches that the officers had kindly brought with them!

Thank you to Corinne and Steve for visiting QAC and delivering a great session to our students!
