Police will soon be keeping teddy bears in their vehicles.
The "Trauma Teddies" will be used to comfort young children who come into contact with police through traumatic circumstances.
Police are working with the Safe, Strong and Free charity to bring the bears to the Highlands and Islands. Once enough bears are collected, they will be kept in the police vehicles.
Feel free to hand in any teddies you knit to your local police station.
