Police throw the book at bike safety

Gladstone Library hosted an event today which combined Book Week and Road Safety Week.

Police officers from the Crime Prevention Unit read stories to kids and families about wearing helmets and crossing the road safely.

The kids were excited to join in and chatted about being safe on their bikes.

Milton, a Junior ‘Super policeman’ joined the Crime Prevention team to deliver important safety messages.

The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all officers.
