WA POLICE go head to head against students from Clontarf Aboriginal College in a game of footy that is sure to be full of action and skill in Bentley next week.

Officers will challenge college teens to a game at Curtin University Oval on Wednesday, August 30 at 4.30pm.

Sgt Matt Sharp said the community was invited to attend and enjoy the game, as well as a free sausage sizzle.

Sgt Sharp said spectators could expect to see quality skills on display from up and coming Clontarf students at the inaugural event.

“The aim is engagement and the building of relationships between police, indigenous students and families and the broader community in the South East Metropolitan Police District,” he said.

“This friendly event will break down barriers that often exist and help police to build trust within our community.”
