A full-time police officer is being based at a school in West Yorkshire in the latest bid to fight crime.
Pc Bridget Brown says she wants pupils to feel safe and valued
Pc Bridget Brown will have an office at Batley Business and Enterprise College.
Head teacher Jim Ryan denied Pc Brown's arrival indicated any trouble at the all-boy college, but said it would help pupils to feel safe and secure.
Pc Brown will tackle any bullying and truancy, but she will also be working in the local community and with other schools in the area.
"It can only be seen as a positive," she said. "I'm here to benefit the school, I'm here to work with the school and to work with the kids.
"I'm not here because this is a problem school by any means."
"The whole idea is to bring the police closer into the community and what better place to be based in the community than the school that serves it," added Mr Ryan.
"We live in quite turbulent times and anything that makes the children happier at school means that they will learn better, they'll work better and they'll forge better friendships."
