The Children were provided with a ‘warrant card’  and, accompanied by an adult, solved clues that had been placed in the shop windows around the Crystal Palace Triangle, writing the names of the shops visited on their card. Cadets and officers were on hand to help if they got stuck.

On route they could check out the vintage Police cars outside Gipsy Hill Police Station.

Having solved all the clues they returned to the library, metPCSO Steve and collected an Easter egg, that had kindly been donated by local shops.The children could have fingerprints taken, watch a demonstration from a scenes of crime officer and do colouring and enter a fancy dress competition.
