Boys and girls in blue go red

THEY look pretty serious in their blues with a gun holstered at their hips. But this Friday you may just catch some Warwick police officers sporting a red nose as they patrol the town.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day, which raises funds for sudden infant death syndrome and children across the state.

Warwick officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Stewart Day said he was willing to get his force involved with the charity event.

"It's something very close to a lot of officers' hearts and we fully support the program to help reduce further incidents," Snr Sgt Day said.

To date, it is estimated that SIDS and Kids has saved the life of more than 7500 babies in Australia since the Red Nose Day appeal began in 1987.
