A MOBILE game featuring Staffordshire police dogs has proved a hit, with more than 600 downloads in its first two days.

The 'Kash Dash' app features police dogs Emma and Jasper, and former police dog and force mascot Kash.

As well as more than 600 downloads within the first two days of it being released, the app has also had 1,500 referrals to online safety websites including Beat Bullying.

The game is similar to 'Flappy Birds' and helps youngsters stay safe online via onscreen messaging about cyber-bullying, stranger danger and privacy settings.

Chief constable Jane Sawyers said: "Online safety is increasingly a major concern for parents and educating children in this area is a priority for the force.
