Children’s Video Series
Helsinki Police Symphonic Band’s video series for children was launched in spring 2020. In the nine episodes we hear some brand new songs along with some familiar ones. Among the topics are the emergency number 112, bullying, traffic, petty theft etc.
Videos with English subtitles are available on the Helsinki Police Symphonic Band YouTube channel.
We hope that video series will bring joy and safety to as many children as possible. All videos are free to use e.g. in teaching.
