The Georgian interior ministry has launched an information campaign aiming to raise awareness on public safety and the rule of law, particularly among the young generations, the interior ministry said on Thursday.

The ministry kicked off the campaign - entitled Befriend the Police - from Georgia’s seaside city of Batumi, with police and emergency service vehicles and equipment displayed in the downtown.

The ministry’s service agency, forensic investigations department, border police, emergency management service, security police and special tasks department were also presented at the event to visitors, including young participants who were invited to take part in “cognitive and entertaining activities”.

Information on public safety and road safety issues was also introduced to the audience at the launch, with visitors also invited to try their hand in simulated first aid provision and learn about the work of the involved institutions.

Running through the end of the next month in six of the main cities of Georgia, the campaign also includes visits to schools, where the ministry professionals will speak to students about public safety, law and order.
