STRANARER COUNCILLOR ORGANISES SHERIFF COURT VISIT FOR LOCAL BROWNIES AND GIRL GUIDES

Councillor McCutcheon and the girls were given a tour of the facilities including the cells, one of the court rooms and the CCTV-monitoring room.  As well as been given a tour, two of the court staff put on a mock trial with the girls play different roles including the role of sheriff, Procurator Fiscal and the defence.

On the visit, Councillor McCutcheon said:

“I was keen to organise this visit so the girls who could see first-hand how our legal system works.  I believe it is important that children gain a full understanding of how the law works and how it is implemented. The girls got to see and experience many different aspects of the system including how the court works as well as getting to see the cells.  The court staff were excellent answering any questions the girls had as well as helping putting on a mock trial.  As a whole, the visit was very informative and the adults enjoyed it as much as the children.  I have to say that all the girls were all very keen to get involved and asked some great questions.”
