Police ‘hunt’ youngsters for Christmas card comp

YOUNGSTERS across Crompton, Royton and Shaw are on Greater Manchester Police’s ‘wanted’ list.

But they will be rewarded rather than punished for coming forward to answer this particular appeal.

The force is looking for children throughout Greater Manchester to design this year’s official GMP Christmas card.

The winning drawing will be digitised and sent to partners, agencies and individuals who support officers throughout the year.

The theme for Christmas 2018 is ‘Police in partnership’.

Following the launch of GMP’s Citizens’ Contract, children are asked to design a card which shows communities working together to create a safe Greater Manchester this Christmas. This could be:

• Following crime prevention
advice such as making sure
presents are out of sight from
windows and doors.

• Highlighting volunteers in the
community helping to make it
safe, such as someone who is
part of the local Neighbourhood
Watch Scheme.

• How you see GMP officers
keeping people safe this
Christmas.

There are two age categories for this competition: age 10–14 and age nine and under.

Each category winner will receive a prize, with the overall winner receiving a VIP visit to GMP to meet the dogs that help keep Greater Manchester safe.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Monday, November, 26. All entries should be on A4 paper.

To submit a child’s artwork, either scan or photograph it and email to
christmas.comp@gmp.police.uk with the artist’s name, age, address and a parent/guardian’s contact telephone number.

The winner of each age group and the overall winner will be chosen by the Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.
