St Marys Police officers will be tackling a different sort of hunt next weekend, one that will be considerably more enjoyable than the search for a criminal.
For the first time since its launch, St Marys Police will be participating in the annual St Marys Easter Egg Hunt.
The presence of the local officers is hoped to positively impact the community’s perception of police in the area.
“St Marys Local Area Command is looking forward to our first St Marys Easter Egg Hunt. My officers are excited about meeting local families and showing them how approachable their local police officers are,” said St Marys LAC Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Barry Vincent.
St Marys Town Centre Limited, the organisation holding the event, is “very excited” to have the local police involved.
“This event is all about bringing the community together in a safe and fun manner. What better way of demonstrating this to our children then by getting them to meet their local police and engaging them in being part of this vibrant event,” said Steve Perry, St Marys Town Centre Limited Chairman.
Now in its third year, the Easter Egg Hunt is expected to be bigger than ever with entertainment, free activities, prizes and sweet treats for kids with good Easter egg hunting skills.
The event will run from 10am to 2pm on April 12.
All children are invited to register and take part in the hunt, providing they are wearing an Easter costume, under the age of 18 and are under the supervision of a parent or guardian.
