STUDENTS have had designs on fighting crime after being chosen to take Fife Constabulary's Public Protection Unit into the future.
Design students from both Adam Smith College in Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline's Carnegie College were asked to design a new logo for the force's Public Protection Unit (PPU).
The Unit, which has recently moved to police headquarters, unified the public protection departments of all service providers under the one roof. This created a climate of improved communication and consistency leading to a better service for the communities of Fife.
The new logo consists of faces of a man, woman and child, overlaid and facing to the right which subconsciously means looking to the future. These are integrated within a shield, representing protection.
The winning logo was designed by a group of three Adam Smith students; Lewis Bell, Stevie Seymour & Jamie Ford named Agency 91.
DCI Pauline McCallum, PPU, said, "We were impressed with the level of thought that had gone into the mechanisms of the winning logo."
Lewis Bell said, "We were delighted to win the competition. It is great that there are opportunities like these that give students little bits of experience of what it is like to work in the design industry. We look forward to seeing our logo in print."
The Public Protection Unit consists of:
'Child Protection' which investigates child abuse.
'Adult Protection' works to protect vulnerable adults at risk of harm and provides support and intervention when required.
Work to target Domestic Abuse.
Offender management and assessment.
E-crime investigations where there is a child protection issue as a result of children being online.
