A young Bundaberg school student has been praised by local police for her efforts in helping with a robbery investigation.
Sergeant Meg Owens, Senior Constable Matt McKinnar and police dog Stinger attended St Joseph's Primary School today to present 10-year-old Jorja-Rae Kostiw with an award.
Sgt Owens said police wanted to thank the grade five student personally for her assistance.
“On Tuesday, March 26 Jorja-Rae provided valuable information to Senior Constable McKinnar about the suspects that he was tracking,” Sgt Owens said.
“At that time, police were attending to a serious incident where a young man had been assaulted and robbed.
“The information Jorja-Rae provided assisted police with their investigation.”
The officers surprised Jorja-Rae at her school this morning and while on parade, presented her with a certificate of thanks and her own soft toy police dog called “Dash”.
“A big thank you to Jorja-Rae from Bundaberg Police,” Sgt Owens said.
