Sussex Downs College performing arts students have provided a crucial service to police by acting as suspects during CID training.
Six students took part in training at the Newhaven Police Station. In previous years students had taken on the roles of witnesses. DC Kelly Lewis said, “We wanted to try the students on the suspect course, and although we were unsure of how it would turn out, we could not be more impressed with the results. All six of the actors from SDC were outstanding.” Pictured: ‘Suspect’ students Beth Allen, Connie Spain, Leila Tasher, Bailey Denyer, Jessica Smith
