A VIDEO warning about the dangers of cyber stalking has been given a Divisional Commander’s Award by Renfrewshire Police. The film was produced by young people from Kibble Group and was given the recognition at an awards ceremony on their Paisley campus by Chief Superintendent Gordon Crossan.
Young people and staff at Kibble spent months working on the project named ‘Have you heard about Chloe?’ to highlight the risks and vulnerabilities young people face when using social media. The final cut is now being used as a resource by Police Scotland across Renfrewshire schools.
Executive Director at Kibble Group Eileen Cummings said:
“It is a great honour to welcome Chief Superintendent Crossan and Police Scotland to our campus for this prize giving. This is yet another example of our strong partnership working with other organisations.
“I know the young people worked incredibly hard to produce a high quality film on such a serious subject. The young people I have spoken to have taken a lot of pride in knowing that their work is being shared with other schools and that they have played their own part in warning others about the dangers of cyber stalking.”
Chief Superintendent Gordon Crossan said:
“The awards ceremony represents an excellent opportunity to acknowledge some of the outstanding work and contributions made by local Police Officers, partners and local people within the communities of Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
“Individuals and groups are being recognised for their part in improving the safety and wellbeing of the people, families and communities living, working and commuting through both Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.”
