Greater Manchester Police visited Clarendon Sixth Form College to deliver a talk to A-Level and BTEC Law students to help them learn about police powers and rights.

Sgt Steve Lovett and PC Nana Pabby covered topics including stop and search tactics, how the law has changed in recent years, interview procedure, detention and more.

They also asked the students questions about what they know about the law and how it applies to their course.

The students also found out more about the work Steve and Nana do in the police force.

Alan Leedham, law teacher at Clarendon Sixth Form, said: “I would like to say thank you to the two officers that visited the college.

“They gave a great insight into the work of the police force, what rules they have to adhere to and why there are so many safeguards in place. The students really enjoyed meeting them and having their questions answered.”

Sgt Steve Lovett said: “The students responded really well to our talk, they asked lots of questions and got involved. They knew their stuff and I was happy to see them learning even more about subjects they have covered. Hopefully there are plenty of future lawyers and police officers in the group.”
