On Tuesday, October 13, children from Jimboomba Education and Childcare attended Jimboomba Police Station and spent some time with the local officers.
They were taught about the importance of ‘Stopping, Looking, Listening and Thinking’ when crossing the road.
With the help of other Jimboomba Police officers, children practised using these steps to cross a mock up pedestrian crossing.
Senior Constable Bernadette Auld of Jimboomba Police Station said after practising, we are confident that the children know the best way to safely cross the road.
“It was great to talk to our young community members about being safe near the road.
“Road safety isn’t just about cars and driving, it’s also about being cautious and careful as pedestrians as well,” Senior Constable Auld said.
“We know that something as simple as this can really help the kids to understand how to keep safe around pedestrian crossings.”
The children were also invited to look at the police vehicles which was, of course, enjoyed by all.
