Teenagers are flying high

Youngsters from Wellingborough took to the skies recently when a police helicopter paid them a visit.

The teenagers are part of Northamptonshire Police’s Jam in the Hood project, which aims to give young people a greater understanding of how police and partner agencies work and their role in making better and safer communities, while also helping to change the negative perceptions that some people within the community may have of young people.

And some of the youngsters jumped at the chance to get in the cockpit of the police force’s helicopter, as these pictures show.
