Po­lice Rangers re­turn

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

THE Kens­ing­ton Po­lice and Com­mu­nity Youth Cen­tre (PCYC) is now tak­ing en­rol­ments for youth aged 11 years and above for its Po­lice Rangers pro­gram.

Po­lice Rangers is an ad­ven­ture-based, youth devel­op­ment ac­tiv­ity of­fered in part­ner­ship with Cadets WA, open to young peo­ple of high school age.

The pro­gram is de­signed to in­crease youth self-con­fi­dence, lead­er­ship abil­ity, team build­ing skills and self-es­teem.

Cen­tre man­ager Amanda Dow said par­tic­i­pants would take part in a num­ber of games and ac­tiv­i­ties, in­doors and out­doors.

“There is ori­en­teer­ing, bas­ket­ball, help­ing out dur­ing An­zac Day and lots of ac­tiv­i­ties,” she said.

“We held the pro­gram a few years ago and now we are look­ing at bring­ing it back.

“I’m quite ex­cited to get it up and run­ning, we’ve got about six nom­i­na­tions so far and we are aim­ing for about 15 d472740 and then we will start the pro­gram around the mid­dle of Septem­ber.”

Ms Dow said par­tic­i­pants would be able to do the pro­gram for many years and move up the ranks to even­tu­ally be­come a Po­lice Ranger in­struc­tor.

The pro­gram will be de­liv­ered on Mon­day nights by vol­un­teer Po­lice Ranger in­struc­tors.

To en­rol in the pro­gram or for more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Ms Dow on 9367 1282.
