State-ofthe-art ap­proach

LOOK how we've changed since 1989!

If you've been a long­time res­i­dent of WA you will no doubt re­mem­ber that Con­sta­ble Care once had a mous­tache (where did that go?) or maybe you re­call the 'some­what awk­ward' safety rhymes printed in the news­pa­per or per­haps even the larger-thanlife Con­sta­ble Care mas­cot meet­ing the kids at Perth's events?

Well, even though these things still spring to mind for some West Aussies, we've ac­tu­ally come a very long way from our ’80s roots and now work with a new gen­er­a­tion of youth through a wide range of cut­ting-edge safety and crime preven­tion pro­grams.

I'm proud to in­tro­duce our new­est cre­ation, the Con­sta­ble Care Safety School.

This state-of-the-art 4500sq m ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing cen­tre in May­lands is de­signed to give pri­mary school kids a chance to prac­tise the road and trans­port safety skills they learn at school in a re­al­is­tic road en­vi­ron­ment packed with all the fea­tures they'll find out there in the real world.

It’s all scaled to kid size and fully func­tional.

Not only that, we've added a whole aug­mented re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence so that school groups of up to 60 stu­dents at a time can ex­pe­ri­ence ‘real’ travel risks over­laid on the ac­tual en­vi­ron­ment through the magic of tech­nol­ogy.

It's se­ri­ously cool, very cut­ting edge and as far as we know, it's a world-first hap­pen­ing right here in WA!
