Positive police role models, Ormeau

On Friday, June 9 police from the Norfolk Village Police Beat attended the Norfolk Village State School as part of their Adopt-a-Cop duties.

The Adopt-a-Cop program is designed to build positive relationships between police and members of the school community.

The goal is for police to make themselves approachable to the youth to create positive attitudes towards police and promote law abiding behaviour.

Today a friendly game of touch football was played with a number of students to break down barriers and help develop the importance of team work and looking out for your friends.

Norfolk Village Police hope to connect with as many students as possible in a fun and relaxed environment, so that when police are seen in the community, the youth are comfortable with approaching and talking to them.
