THE Public Order Response Team has a new member – Constable T. Bear.
Complete with a riot shield, helmet, baton and knee pads, Constable T. Bear is ready for action.
The 14th edition bear is on sale from December 19, with all funds raised going to the Blue Ribbon Foundation.
The foundation was set up in memory of Victoria police killed in the line of duty, and makes regular donations to worthwhile community projects and organisations.
Bears can be purchased at the Bendigo police station for $65.
But one lucky reader can win a bear simply by purchasing the December 19 edition of the Bendigo Advertiser. Tell us how many times the bear appears in the paper and you will go in the draw.
Write the number on the back of an envelope, along with your name, phone number and address, and post it to the Bear Competition, PO Box 61 Bendigo, 3552. Entries close last mail December 23.
