WITH police officers, Santa, balloons and ice-cream all on offer, Wellington Point will be a fun place to take children on Wednesday, December 14.
To beat the summer heat, Capalaba police have added ice-cream to the ticket as a special treat for children at their Coffee with a Cop event.
Santa will hand out lollies and balloons and the Queensland Police mascots Clancy the Koala and PD Sarge will be there.
