Road safety on the agenda for pint-size police visitors

Charlotte and Harrison visit the Gin Gin Police Station.

Charlotte and Harrison were super keen to visit a real police station and recently had the opportunity to experience just that in Gin Gin.

While at the station they were given a VIP tour by Sergeant Sharon Morgan, which included sitting behind the wheel of the police car and trying the ballistic vests and caps on for size.

But it was not all fun and games as Sergeant Morgan spoke to them about the serious business of road safety.

Much to learn at visit to police station

They learnt the importance of seat belts and how they save lives, being good travellers and how important it is not to distract your parents when they are driving.

Sergeant Morgan also covered road safety in relation to pedestrians including holding hands with an adult to cross and looking both ways when crossing roads.

As they live on a massive cattle property, farm safety around dams was another important topic.

Of course, no visit to the Gin Gin Police Station is complete without visiting puppy Bailey who is proving to be a bit of an attraction on her own.

According to their Mum, the duo haven’t stopped talking about their visit which was definitely the highlight of their week!
