Unusual Christmas Attraction with Cops Fascinates Children

Yesterday, children and adults were excited to get into the police cars and receive gifts from Kharkiv cops on Maidan Svobody.

Kharkiv patrolmen and city residents joined the all-Ukrainian “Christmas with Patrolmen” charity event.

Law enforcement guards delivered an interesting educational program on traffic rules and personal safety guidelines for the youngsters. The eager quest participants received funny prizes.

The little ones were allowed to communicate with the police officers, to get behind the wheel under the professionals’ eye, to try on patrol gear, to pet the trained patrol dogs and to get the answers to all their tricky questions. Everyone was happy to take a photo with patrolmen.

The action was organized by a patrol crew and a tactical-operational response team. About 50 Kharkivites took part in the event.


“Christmas with patrolmen” initiative took place in Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Severodonetsk and 14 other Ukrainian cities to highlight the traffic police patrolmen and the safety rules.
