King David safety drive

A street awareness drive was launched in conjunction with Greater Manchester Police on Monday at King David High School.

Assistant Chief Constable Terry Sweeney addressed around 400 pupils at a special assembly to launch a joint partnership scheme with the CST and Maccabi Streetwise project. “This pilot could transfer to other areas of Greater Manchester,” he said afterwards.

Some 3,000 safety cards will be handed out to young Jews across the city offering advice on drugs, alcohol, bullying and internet safety. GMP has jointly funded the £10,000 project.

Streetwise project manager Ashley Lerner said a similar project launched with the Metropolitan Police last summer had gone well.
