PSNI urges A level students to stay safe when celebrating results

Students at Thornhill celebrate their A Level results 

THE PSNI have urged students to stay safe and out of trouble when planning to celebrate their A Level or AS results.

Temporary Chief Superintendent Simon Walls said that the force understands that people want to go out and celebrate but warned that “sometimes high spirits can go a little too far with young people overindulging in alcohol.”

 “I want to remind our young people that each of us is responsible for our own actions, even under the influence of alcohol,” he said.

“A criminal record for assault or a public order offence can have a real impact on future career prospects. Don’t take the risk.”

Chief Superintendent Walls also urged students to put as much thought into how they will get home at the end of night as they do into planning to have fun. 

“It's a good idea to have your lift home arranged or taxi pre-booked before you go out,” he said.

“It's also important that friends look out for each other. Be responsible and stick together.”
