The Hall's preppies take a ride on the right side of the law

OFFICERS watch carefully as people pile into their police van, before jumping in and turning on the siren.

In this instance they won't be transporting their passengers to the station - they're not criminals, but Prep students from The Hall Primary School.

Yesterday, the school took part in the Adopt-A-Cop program.

Students hopped in the police cars, heard the sirens, saw fingerprinting first-hand and listened to a safety awareness message. The school's Adopt-A-Cop, Constable David Bletchly, said they tried to come to schools regularly.

"It helps build our relationships with the kids," he said. "They know they can come to us."
