Introducing… PC Claire Annison

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

PC Claire AnnisonPC Claire Annison is the new Schools & Youth Engagement Officer for Chiltern and South Bucks, based at Amersham police station. Claire has been with TVP for nearly 11 years working predominantly in Neighbourhood policing. As a result of being in the Amersham Neighbourhood Team for so long, over the years Claire has encountered a great many of the young people in the area, in one capacity or another!

The Schools Officer role had been vacant for 2-3 years. Now reinstated, the remit is still emerging, but involves engaging and working with schools (and other establishments for young people) to support them in fulfilling their objective of making theirs a safe environment. Key to this is addressing themes, trends and emerging problems in order to prevent, support and educate offenders or those at risk.

It is recognised that children are developing and learning in the choices they make and the risks they take, and criminalising them can severely affect their future prospects. TVP and the Criminal Justice system are conscious of this in dealing with young people. They embrace the ‘Safer Schools Partnership’ (SSP) approach to school incidents; many school incidents can be dealt with under SSP where schools investigate, record and impose their own sanctions where appropriate.

The Schools Officer will work closely with the Safeguarding department and Neighbourhood Police Teams to provide a shared response to issues affecting school communities.
