Local Police Inspector Andy Smith said: “We’re really pleased to be getting on board with this year’s Kops and Kids organised by Everybody Sport and Recreation. Our officers and PCSOs will be supporting the team to help children stay active and healthy and most importantly, have fun.

"As well as getting kids fit in a fun environment, these events also strengthen relationships between police and young people and helps builds trust between them, which is vital in building better communities.
