Logan Central Police Station are proud to be active members of the Adopt-A-Cop program which builds and fosters relationships between police and members of the school community.
One of Logan Central Police Station’s Adopt-A-Cop schools is the Logan City Special School.
There are approximately 250 students with intellectual, autism (and other disabilities) enrolled from Early Childhood Development Program through to Year 12.
Adopt-A-Cops attend the school regularly, interacting with the students in a fun way, providing positive messaging about road, personal safety and more.
On Monday, February 22, Logan Central Police Adopt-A-Cops attended the Logan City Special School with two officers from the Mounted Police Unit. Parents were also invited to attend.
The students had turns sitting in the police all-terrain vehicle and then patting the horses.
It was the first time most students had interacted with a horse and there were smiles all around.
Young Noah, who was born without arms was given the opportunity to hug a horse. The expression on his face was priceless.
A great day was had by all and further forged the relationship between the students, parents, teachers and police.
