AFP launches activity book for school children

The Australian Federal Police has released an activity book for school-aged children to boost engagement between the agency and the youngest members in our community.

The AFP activity book explains in a child-friendly way how the AFP keeps Australia safe through a series of colouring pages and activities, including a word search, spot the difference and maze.

Manager Communications and Customs Marina Simoncini said the AFP activity book provides an opportunity for the AFP to increase children’s understanding of the organisation.

“We developed the AFP activity book so children understand what the AFP is and what we do. Its important children understand our role, particularly our work keeping children safe online,” Ms. Simoncini said.

“Children will get to meet some of our members, including Constable Paul the Platypus who works in national investigations, Wendy the Wombat from cybercrime and forensic scientist Doctor Maggie the Magpie.”

The AFP activity book is a great resource for children to complete alone or with their parents and carers during the upcoming school holidays, allowing the whole family to learn more about the AFP.

“We hope it inspires the next generation of AFP recruits,” Ms. Simoncini said.
