The Adopt-a-Cop program provides primary schools with a local police officer whom they 'adopt'. The officer becomes a role model, who conducts presentations on a wide range of topics, including ‘stranger danger’ and police and the law. These presentations focus on risky behaviours and their consequences to the community, and discussion about making good decisions.
A Tasmania Police Colouring Book is available as a resource for teachers and parents. Colour in police motor bikes, helicopters and police officers.
