Southwark College welcomed representatives from the Metropolitan Police and WeAreWaterloo to speak with students and implement initiatives aimed at safeguarding students' belongings.

During the event, friendly police officers set up a stall to provide students with the opportunity to have their phones and bikes tagged. This innovative method of property marking ensures that in the unfortunate event of theft, MET Police can swiftly trace and recover the stolen items, thereby increasing the chances of apprehending the perpetrator and returning the valuables to their rightful owners.

In addition to the property tagging initiative, the College welcomed Karol Doherty, the Security Manager for the Business Improvement District WeAreWaterloo, to deliver a comprehensive session on situational awareness. Karol's expertise in this crucial area provided the students with valuable insights into recognising potential risks and staying vigilant in their surroundings to minimise the risk of theft.

The collaborative efforts between the Metropolitan Police, WeAreWaterloo and Southwark College underscore an initiative-taking approach to community safety, emphasising the importance of partnership and education in addressing local crime challenges. By empowering students with practical tools and knowledge, this initiative enhances their personal safety and contributes to creating a secure and resilient community in Southwark.
