Adopt-a-cop welcomed

Landsborough State School’s latest enrolment wears a uniform, but he isn’t a student.  Senior Constable Tim Jessup was officially inducted as the school’s Adopt-A-Cop at a special assembly held on Monday July 10. 

 The Adopt-A-Cop program helps build positive relationships between police and members of the school community (students, staff, parents and carers, other interested community members).  As part of their functions, Adopt-A-Cops perform rapport-building and education roles such as delivering classroom presentations in partnership with teachers, attending key events on the school calendar, addressing school parades, and conducting informal visits. It leads to friendships and helps children develop safety networks.

Landsborough State School Principal, Selina Barry, said the students are very excited and eager to interact with Senior Constable Tim Jessup during his visits.

Landsborough State School is sharing the love with Beerwah State School, as it also adopted Constable Tim as it’s adopt-a-cop too.

Beerwah State School adopted the constable on June 14. where he was welcomed by principal Scott Bowden, who started his role this year at the school.

Landsborough also had a warm welcome for the senior constable, saying they couldn’t wait to see where the partnership will go in the future.
