A girl from Heanor andone from Loscoe have picked up their prizes from their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team after entering a competition at the Police Experience event.

The youngsters were drawn as runners up out of dozens of entries in the children’s colouring competition after the event at Derby Market Place in June.

Six-year-old Grace Austin Mellor, of Loscoe, and six-year-old Isabelle Brailsford, of Heanor, each collected their bag of sweets and goodies on July 31 from PCs Dan Quick and Sarah Allcock.

The Police Experience, which was part of Inspiring Derby week, involved a number of officers and staff from different areas displaying their work and providing information on policing.

It also included a number of children’s activities and competitions, with 
prizes donated form the winners by 
local firms.
