Police officers are to go back to school in a Derbyshire in an effort to cut crime.
It is part of plans get more bobbies on the beat.
Wilsthorpe School in Long Eaton is the first school in the county to have a permanent police office based in its building.
The idea is that it will give the public greater access to the police in the community around the school.
Derbyshire Police says they hope that the new office and increased visibility of policing in the area will lead to a reduction in crime, particularly vandalism and car break-ins.
These crimes have been a problem in what is acknowledged by the police to be a high crime area.
Around £18,000 pounds is being spent to build the office which it is hoped could act as a pilot for other schools in Derbyshire.
