Police get 'nosey'

IPSWICH police will get into the spirit of Red Nose Day this year to show their support for families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day, which raises funds for SIDS and Kids Queensland, the organisation that provides bereavement support to families that have experience the sudden death of a baby during pregnancy, birth and infancy.

Ipswich Crime Prevention Unit's Sergeant Nadine Webster said Red Nose Day was an important event for the community to support.

"This is an issue that affects the community that we are a part of," Sgt Webster said.

More than 3500 Australian families experience the sudden and unexpected death of a child each year.

The Red Nose Day appeal began in 1987 and is held annually on June 29.
