Welcome Constable Mick!

​Today at Parade we welcomed our new adopt-a-cop, Constable Michael O'Halloran to our school community. We would like to thank our local Member of Parliament, Mr. Mark Boothman MP and Senior-Sergeant Andrew Godbold for their assistance in the adoption. Constable Mick is very excited to start working with our community.

The Adopt-a-Cop program was implemented in 1985 to build positive relationships between police and members of the school community through the voluntary appointment of Adopt-a-Cops to schools and other relevant organisations. Note: Members of the school community include students, staff, parents, carers, other interested community members.

The program is an integral part of policing and reflects a greater emphasis on police partnerships with the community. Currently there are over 950 Adopt-a-Cops performing duties in over 1100 Queensland schools.

Adopt-a-Cops are police officers and Police Liaison Officers (to be referred to as ‘Adopt-a-PLOs’) who volunteer to participate in the program. Adopt-a-Cops are generally appointed to primary and secondary schools, however may also be appointed to special schools, early childhood centres and community groups.
