Police youth activities return at Redcliffe

Posted: 9am 23 Jul 2020

A program bringing young people and police together has resumed at Redcliffe. It’s free to join in Local Drug Action Team Youth Activities on Thursdays.

All the fun starts on July 23 and will run for eight weeks, every Thursday, from 3.30-5pm. It includes Basketball, Oztag, boxing, fun and games, barbecue, team interaction, and engagement with local police.

Moreton District Crime Prevention Unit Officer in Charge Sergeant Sarah Grayson says the activities started last year but were put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions.

They have now resumed for terms three and four of the school year, with children from Year 5 and above welcome to join in. Younger children can attend, but must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

How does it help young people?

“The program aims to build a rapport between the police and agencies and local youth, with the long-term goal to deter them from crime, drugs and alcohol and assist them to keep on the right track,” Sgt Grayson says.

It’s also a good way to help youth work through challenges they may be facing.

Who’s involved?

Queensland Police Service Moreton Crime Prevention Team, Redcliffe PCYC, police volunteers and Encircle Neighbourhood Centre.

The number of young people attending varies from week to week.

Join in the fun

Head to Redcliffe Skatepark, 437 Oxley Ave, Redcliffe; or the basketball court near the jumping pillow at Scarborough Beach Park, Landsborough Ave. The action’s on from 3.30-5pm.
