A police dog running down an armed criminal or an officer pulling out a taser is not exactly what you would expect to see on the Swindon College campus.
But for one day only in May, students took part in a project with Wiltshire Police to make two films, as part of FAKE, or Firearm and Knife Education, a scheme to discourage teenage crime.
The police approached the college, and students were tasked with storyboarding the scenarios. Officers then spent a day putting the ideas into action which included a stuntman and police dog Reggie.
The two films edited by the students will be used in Wiltshire schools by the police to educate young people about the consequences of carrying a knife.
Richard Wright, work experience co-ordinator at Swindon College, said: “It was an incredible opportunity for the students to put their skills to practical use and in a professional way for a client. The experience has been invaluable. It’s a win-win for everyone; the police get a video made for them and we gained the experience.”
