Police hopeful Constable T. Bear will arrive in Bendigo next week

The newest edition of Constable T. Bear has arrived in Melbourne, but Bendigo police are still waiting to find out when he’ll make an appearance here.

It is believed the cuddly collectable will arrive mid-next week, but details will be published in the Bendigo Advertiser when known.

The bear will be available to purchase on a set date and time at the station, still to be organised.

A new edition of Constable T. Bear has been launched each year since 2000, raising funds for the Blue Ribbon Foundation.

This year’s T. Bear, the 17th edition, takes on the uniform of the Chief Commissioner – a role held by only 22 people since Victoria Police was formed in 1853.

Only 5000 bears have been produced for this edition and will be on sale in early December.

Constable T. Bear can be pre-ordered online at copshop.com.au or bought at the Bendigo Police Station when he arrives.
