For the last three years, vulnerable kids in the area of Redfern NSW have found comfort in knitted teddies thanks to a city cop.

Leading Senior Constable Emma Whitmill started the incredible movement of making cuddly teddies to give to kids who have been affected by crimes, such as domestic violence.

Since then, hundreds of Aussies have gotten on board to donate teddies and over 2500 teddies have been handed out.

Leroy had a chat to Emma further about this phenomenal initiative and how it all began.
