Po­lice have pres­ence

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Sey­mour po­lice staged a dis­play at the Great Sey­mour Show Off where mem­bers of the pub­lic could learn more about po­lice units and ser­vices.

The ini­tia­tive aimed to build stronger links and a bet­ter con­nected com­mu­nity.

Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Jamie Emond said he hoped peo­ple would take up the op­por­tu­nity to come along and have a chat to their lo­cal po­lice.

‘‘The aim of this ini­tia­tive was to cre­ate a com­mu­nity where peo­ple feel con­nected to po­lice,’’ Sgt Emond said.

‘‘This was a great op­por­tu­nity to open up the com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels in an in­for­mal space.

‘‘We were happy to meet with peo­ple and fam­i­lies as they checked out the dis­play we had at the show.

‘‘We had some of our spe­cial­ist units there on the day as well, which in­cluded Sey­mour uni­form and high­way pa­trol, the po­lice pipe band, wa­ter po­lice, mounted branch and search and res­cue.

‘‘We also had a colour­ing com­pe­ti­tion for the kids with prizes.

‘‘The win­ners also get to have their pic­tures proudly dis­played at the Sey­mour po­lice sta­tion.’’

Mem­bers from SES, CFA, DEWLP and VicRoads were also in at­ten­dance.

Dis­play: The Vic­to­ria Po­lice mounted branch joined the ex­ten­sive Sey­mour po­lice dis­play at the Sey­mour Show Off at the week­end.
