The talks are an hour long tackle issues around knife crime, gun crime, personal safety and the sensitive issue around gangs which has been highlighted recently on the BBC TV show WATERLOO ROAD.

Pc Corbett, who is the community police officer for the Denewood Est., Beechdale said  " i really enjoy going into schools and talking to young people about these issues, the young people today are so switched on to issues like knife and gun crime that i makes my job of informative speaking and pleasure"

Pc Corbett carries out the talks with his colleague Trish Bergan whose son was stabbed to death in 2003, Pc Corbett said " Trish is a great inspiration, she has been through so much heartache and 9 years on since the death of her son Eugene, she still gets up and talks to young people about her situation, she is amazing"

There are still a number of talks that Pc Corbett and Trish have goto  do at Bulwell Academy but once these talks have been carried out the number of young people spoken to around this issue is pushing 4500 since 2009.
