Deputy Chief Constable Makes Presentation of Scout New Partnership Badge

Date: 24th Nov 2018 Author: Gerald Law

Deputy Chief Constable Garry Forsyth presented Alyssa Phelps of Blenheim Scout Group with the first new Police Partnership uniform badge. Alyssa’s design was chosen from over 100 entries after the Blenheim group was selected to attend a briefing about the new badge requirements last year.
Her design has been transformed in to a very special and unique badge to be worn with pride. This has inspired Alyssa to work exceptionally hard to complete the badge requirements and it is fantastic that she is the 1st to receive the award.
Deputy Chief Constable Garry Forsyth expressed how important it is for the Police to be working with Scouts and how proud he was to be presenting this badge to Alyssa.
Also present was Inspector Annita Clarke, who leads the Community Policing Team – which has responsibility for presenting the badge requirements. Inspector Clarke has been assisted by PC Ryen Jerren delivering the presentation to around 200 Scouts, 50 parents from 10 troops across Luton.


Of the five segments of the badge, three are Police led:
Police Familiarisation
Gangs, knives, drugs and alcohol
Personal protection
The final two are Scout led:
World Challenge Award
Create a poster or journal about what you’ve learned.

The idea of the badge is to increase awareness of the police and their role in society, to help young people develop their future and protect them from crime. Basically to help them avoid the criminal circle and encourage personal protection – online and in everyday life.
A number of other troops are working on this badge and it is hoped that, with a little help from our Scouting family, this can get as far as possible around the county and beyond.
