Police sniffer dogs search Stanley High School Southport
A police sniffer dog was brought in to search Stanley High School, Marshside, Southport today. The search took place between 8:30am and 9:30am this morning (Thursday 4th October 2012).
Headteacher at Stanley High School said: “The Governors approve of the close links we have with external agencies, the police force being one of them, and we welcome them to the school and the message that it will give to all members of our community.
“The vast majority of people do not involve themselves with illegal activities, but it is appropriate that the message is reinforced, we have a zero tolerance approach to anything illegal.”
A police source added: “We have had nothing but positive feedback from these operations and this was a great opportunity to work with the school.
“If any students had been found in possession of drugs it would highlight an issue that could be dealt with immediately and the fact that no drugs were found endorses the strict policy that Stanley High School maintains.”
He went on to say: “The operation was a great success and the fact that no drugs were found means that the operation has reinforced a message that is obviously working. “It showed partnership working at its best.”
