YOUNGSTERS have been learning first hand about the long arm of the law.

PCSOs from Vange took a mobile police station out at the weekend to meet residents.

Children were able to see how officers take fingerprints and have their own prints taken.

They also took part in colouring-in sessions at the event on Saturday, which took place in Luncies Park Road and Ravenscourt Drive.

There was also something in store for adults, who were able to have their property security marked and talk to officers about their crime-related concerns.
