Everything parents need to know on the latest crime issues at free information sessions

The Braintree District Community Safety Partnership are inviting parents and carers of children/young people who attend school in the Braintree District to free information and awareness sessions.

Parents/carers will be able to hear up to date information relating to drugs and alcohol, gangs and knife crime, social media and the internet and child sexual exploitation.

The sessions will give parents and carers useful tips and an insight into the issues children and young people face in today’s modern society.

Sessions will be held at secondary schools across the district. Full details of dates, times and venues can be found at www.braintree.gov.uk/parentsessions  

Councillor Wendy Schmitt, Cabinet Member responsible for Community Safety, said: “It’s important for parents/carers of children and young people to understand the criminal issues happening in today’s society and these sessions will inform and educate, as well as help them identify and spot signs of the activity in their community.”
