Tag a Toddler at the Warwick Show
THERE is nothing worse then being in a crowd and realising your little one is no longer beside you; lost among the people.
Warwick Police District crime prevention coordinator Acting Senior Constable Sarah Ellis wants to combat this problem and make returning children to parents at the 2010 Warwick Show easier by using Tag a Toddler.
“We wanted to do this because we get the odd parent come up who has lost their child or (lost) children coming up as well,” she said.
“The main thing is about getting interaction between the kids and police and a quicker reunion to help kids, parents and us.”
Parents just need to come and visit the police at the Jack Fanning Bar where their child will get a wrist band with parents’ and child’s names and a mobile phone number and explain to the child to come to the police if lost.
Warwick Police will also be operating with Queensland Police Service recruiting officers and Crime Stoppers to provide information on their services.
The recruiting officers will be able to help sign young hopeful police officers up on the day or provide information on how to join.
The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service Warwick Station will monitor the show from today to make sure everything is safe and stop any fire hazards.
Officer-in-charge Syd Blank said they would be on site for the Demolition Derby to extinguish any fires and make sure everything is safe at all times.
“It’s for community safety working with the show society especially with the large crowd that will be coming into the showgrounds for the weekend,” he said.
