Ferny Grove Police officers recently visited Little Gems Child Care and Early Learning Centre in Albany Creek for a day of fun learning about the role of a police officer in the community.

The little boys and girls were given the opportunity to dress up as officers whilst they learn how to recognise an actual police officer by looking for things like their uniform and most importantly, their badge.

“The police brought with them the police cars and motorbike which the kids loved taking turns sitting in the driver’s seat and riding the police bike,” Senior Constable Ricky Blanckensee said.

“The highlight for the kids was of course finding the buttons to turn on the lights and sirens of the police car. Centre Staff also had the opportunity to try the uniforms and to take the driver’s seat.”

The visit is part of the police initiative to reach out to children in kindergartens and child care centres and educate them on the importance of police and how to contact them during an emergency.
