They also had the chance to listen to Domestic Violence prevention advice and sit in a police car and fire engine.
Police and Fire and Rescue officers gave safety talks at local schools while antisocial behaviour advice was provided during the week through a drop-in session at Barrow Hill Community Centre.
Hot spot patrols and walkabouts were carried out along with litter picks.Enforcement action was a part of the week too, with the police carrying out drugs raids and speed checks.
Coun Mick Barton, MDC Portfolio Holder for Public Protection, said: “The Community Engagement Team did a wonderful job, involving many partners and getting them to deliver a wide range of actions.
“There have been very positive comments from those involved and from members of the community. We are confident there will be more good news to come from it.”
