KSS Incidents 12 - 21 September 2018
Dear KSS Clients
It is critical that you get an accurate description of a vehicle that you suspect is suspicious or leaving the scene of a crime. Colour, make and VEHICLE REGISTRATION are crucial for law enforcement to follow up with an effective investigation.
Thank you Laddsworth School for giving me the opportunity to address your learners about their Personal Safety. It is a real privilege to be able to talk to children and make a difference in our communities.
