Helping students feel safe in our community

PC Simon Stone: 


Staffordshire University Police Liason Officer, Simon is based at College Road in the Cadman building. PC Stone is enthusiastic about engaging students in all aspects of crime prevention, awareness, and safety on and around campus and as a Cop Shop student volunteer you can assist in this work; raising awareness, promoting campaigns as well as gaining experience and building network connections that will enhance your CV!


Sarah Hodgkinson, Policing Student/Society Manager & Team Leader:


An aspiring Police officer and team leader for the Cop Shop here at Staffordshire University; Sarah is studying level 5 BSc (Hons) Professional Policing and has interests in community interaction and developing student engagement.

Volunteering for the Cop Shop has enabled Sarah to build networks within the community and as such, throughout the summer; she has attended many meetings on behalf of the Cop Shop in partnership with Mutual Gain whose aim is to help organizations build social capital and develop active citizens in their communities. Sarah has been assigned to the voting panel of the 'Participatory Budgeting Scheme' for the 'Shelton Speaks' program, whereby members of the community bid for a share of £20,000 with the aim of improving safety within the Shelton community. The Participatory Budget is designed to empower communities and help them to work with local agencies to develop solutions to problems that are affecting their lives.
