The Adopt-a-Cops of the Maroochydore Police Division have been kept busy the last two weeks by participating in school festivals.
Several local schools and kindergartens held their annual festivals and police attended to provide the children the opportunity to sit in a police car and talk to officers.
There were smiles all around not just for the children but also for the police who enjoy this aspect of their job.
Adopt-a-Cop Senior Constable Candice Strain was on hand at Brightwater State School fete recently to promote road safety with Seymour the Neighbourhood Watch Owl.
“I really enjoy interacting with the children at these events,” Senior Constable Strain said.
Teaching young children strategies to keep themselves safe is so important.
