Speaker Series: Modern Police Services

On Tuesday of this week, we were delighted to welcome the Chief Constable of Lancashire, Mr Andy Rhodes, to school to talk about the issues and challenges faced by the modern police service.
He spoke about how policing has changed over the years from the days of the friendly “Bobby on the beat” to the modern police who police the “private spaces”, the areas of life that are thankfully unknown to the majority of us.
Mr Rhodes started his career as a young officer in Blackpool and as such was able to give the students a unique and fascinating insight into the area where they live. The questions asked by the Rossall students were searching and direct and the students appreciated Mr Rhodes’ honesty on issues such as funding and counter-terrorism. 
We hope to welcome him back in the future.
