Midlothian households will soon see a colourful warning about house break-ins.

Kami Oliver, a P7 pupil at Cuiken Primary, Penicuik, won the Midlothian crime awareness poster competition, organised by Lothian and Borders Police.

P5 to P7 classes from all schools across the county were invited to design posters aimed at delivering theft prevention messages to their local communities.

Lucky Kami was presented with an iPod Shuffle from Midlothian commander Superintendent Liz McAinsh at an awards ceremony in Dalkeith Library.

PC Lianne Maltman, from the Safer Communities Department at Dalkeith Police Station, said: “A priority for the Force is working in partnership to provide crime prevention advice, which helps our communities from falling victim to crime in the first instance.”
