A NUMBER of High School pupils in the Borders got the opportunity to look round their local police station on Monday November 14 2022 to see for themselves the different roles that officers carry out.

Students from the Hawick High School’s Enhanced Learning Unit visited the station where Community Action Team officers police constables Ryan Stewart and Carin Tait-Logan acted as hosts.
