STUDENTS are doing their bit to keep their campus safer after a new scheme was launched.

The first young people to take part in Barton Peveril’s new Student Watch scheme have been presented with Police Support Volunteer certificates by Hampshire Constabulary.

Student Watch is a volunteering opportunity available to all Barton Peveril students and aims to harness the power of volunteer support to increase awareness of police-led initiatives in the field of crime prevention and the safety of both people and their property.

Activities carried out by the group included a cycle coding session, a firearms and knife education event, phone logging awareness and monitoring vehicle speeds near the college.
