ACT Policing's Constable Kenny Koala program is designed to educate child care and primary-aged school children between three to 12-years-of-age on a range of safety themes, and to encourage them to turn to police for help and advice.
Constable Kenny has been a visible figure in the ACT for more than 40 years, and is a popular 'trusted' character used to address several safety issues, primarily driven by a crime prevention approach.
The program is all about teaching children how to 'Stay OK' — how they can make the right choices, recognising that there are consequences associated with the decisions we make. This also provides them with a level of awareness of appropriate safety behaviours to prevent them becoming a victim of crime, or a perpetrator of crime.
Constable Kenny helps us achieve our mission of 'keeping the peace and preserving public safety in the ACT' through early childhood education.
