Great Advice for Little People
The project came into begin in 2007 both as a crime prevention means and as a challenge to communicate with young children. Story characters were created (Zorro - the police dog, Alex - the good kid, the Wise Commissioner, Norocel - the fluffy crime prevention agent).
These characters soon became children’s’ friends and the liaison between police and children on the principle of friendship and mutual trust. In time, the characters were given voices and faces, thus becoming game characters in a series of games created by Bucharest police in partnership with the private sector, such as: “Dont be a Twicer!”, “The Salt Shaker with preventive advice” (Origami), “The Academy of Little Police” (a PC game on children’s rights and good behaviour). The PC game was introduced by Microsoft on the MIRIA computers, provided with parental control.
The project started in 2007 and is still running.
