June 2015 Recipients
North Rodney Blue Light received $1,191.98 to purchase thirty branded t-shirts for volunteers to wear at events making them easily identifiable. This is important when dealing with large numbers of youth and children.
The charity and community policing youth programme has run drug, alcohol and violence free activities in the local community for the past 20 years, with up to 1,500 youths benefitting from the volunteer-run activities each year.
The programmes are centred on educating and developing outdoor skills to boost confidence and foster life skills, aiming to reduce youth crime, enhance community safety and build positive youth and Police partnerships.
