THE county’s crime commissioner spoke to students at a politics society at a Southsea school.
The St John’s College Politics Society hosted him at its second event of the term.
Simon Hayes explained his duties as the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Commissioner to an audience of more than 50 people.
Students of government and politics at St John’s College, who are looking at law and order as part of their A-level studies, listened to the speech.
Harrison Rockensuss, 17, and from Southsea, said; ‘Before Mr Hayes’ talk we studied the election process for the post in class, so it was good to be able to talk to him about the election and his campaign last night.
‘It’s has given me greater insight into the role he plays within local law and order.’
Roy McBain, 17, and from Portsmouth, chaired last night’s meeting.
He said: ‘I’ve so far chaired two meetings, and for me Mr Hayes’ talk was extremely relevant to my studies.’
