Game organiser Constable Stu Pelletier hoped it would allow students to get to know police on a different level.

It was the first time the Wanneroo officers, who faced a team of teachers and students, had held an event of its type.

�I�ve just been looking for ways for us to engage with kids a bit better,� Const Pelletier said. |�It makes us more approachable.�

In a tight battle, the Wanneroo high school representatives edged out the team in blue by five points last Tuesday. Const Pelletier was buoyed by the strong turnout.
