POLICE have launched a set of collectable cards to help children understand what local officers do.

Hayes and Coney Hall Safer Neighbourhoods Team promoted the trump cards at Hayes Primary School on April 30.

The 30-card deck, based on the Top Trumps card-swapping game, carries pictures and descriptions of police officers.

Police constable Mark Donovan said: "Younger children have always enjoyed collecting cards and we have certainly seen a lot of interest in these new ones."

Each officer will carry their own card and children will be challenged to find and speak to officers.

Headteacher at Hayes Primary School, Jo Brinkley, said: "We are delighted to work with police to make our neighbourhood the best place it can be for our young people".
