The police is quite often imagined as a bugbear. In order to change such an opinion, a Police friend symbol has been created in the majority of the European countries. Lithuania neighbour Estonia chose a lion cub and Estonia – a beaver.

Lithuanian Police Department under the Ministry of Interior decided to elect a "Police friend" symbol.

The "Police friend" symbol selected is expected to impact the formation of positive children’s and especially teenagers’ opinion about the law and order. The symbol will become a personage of destined for the legal training of the children literature. In the educational institutions the policemen clothed in the personage costumes will organize various activities intended for advance delinquency prevention.

Supporting the project of the Police department, the company Penki kontinentai incited creation of the "Police friend" symbol and presentation thereof on the web. The children and the youth is given remarkable opportunity to draw the police friend at the web site For this purpose a special electronic means has been integrated into the web site – a drawing is created using computer mouse. is a popular chat web site. Majority of the chat members - youth, which is expected to be involved into the project. Chat rooms are a perfect mean for the active discussions and for exchanging opinions.

Before the beginning of the "Police friend" contest, a survey has been made in several Lithuanian schools. The pupils were to tell what animal the policemen are alike. The answers were different:

  • like a mouse because it’s fast and hardly noticeable (Jonas, 6 th form);
  • like a fox because it’s clever (Monika, 6 th form);
  • like a tortoise because it has got body armour and it’s green; and because it is as slow as a police car (Edvinas, 6 th form);
  • like a dragon because the policemen are courageous and powerful like them (Žygimantas, 6 th form);
  • like a cat because the cats feel the smell of the thieves and guards the house (Vėtra, 1st form);
  • like an octopus because the police never lacks the hands to complete plenty of different tasks in a time (Marius, 6th form.);
  • like a tiger because our police is as strong as the tigers are (Kristina, 2nd form.), etc.

    Today the police celebrates its professional holiday and expects to choose the symbol of the "Police friend" as fast as possible.
