Santa receives police escort when visiting Childers children

Constable Rohin Power and Constable Hannah Shaw recently had a very important person to escort, supporting Santa to visit the children of Childers.


Constables Power and Shaw were happy to help out, making sure that Santa arrived safely, continuing a long held tradition whereby Santa visits each year, arriving in a police vehicle to the service where children eagerly await his arrival (and presents).


This year, Santa delivered books which the officers were keen to read to the children.


Constable Power read a book about the old man that swallowed a ute, an Aussie adaptation of the old woman who swallowed a fly.


In retelling the story, Constable Power alleged that the man in question also swallowed various other animals such as galahs and toads, with Constable Power “enthusiastically performing” the appropriate noises, to the delight of his audience.


While the officers didn’t actually ask Santa for anything this year, he was happy to pose for a quick selfie on the way.


Queensland Police shared reliable intel that the reindeer are resting up for Christmas, and were unavailable to attend.
