THE COMMANDER'S ACTIVE CITIZEN PROGRAM 2019
The Commander's Active Citizen Program (CACP) introduces indigenous student leaders from the Tweed Byron District to a range of organisations and community groups to help them think about their future career choices and to help establish and promote meaningful ties between indigenous youth and local police.
The program, now in its 4th year, has students participate in a number of skills and team building exercises over a 6 month period which range from first aid courses to rock climbing with our Division Manager, Jason Semple and Operations Manager, Carlee Raabe. Students also learned about aboriginal art and heritage throughout the program.
The final leadership camp was held over a 3 day period in Canberra at the end of November where students and mentors participated in a number of challenges which included summiting Mt Kosciuszko and they also visited the Royal Military College Duntroon and Australian War Memorial before being awarded with a certificate at the completion of the program on 3 December 2019. Our Operations Manager, Carlee was also privileged to participate in the final leadership camp as a mentor along with 2 students from last year's program.
LEGEAR is proud to support this program by providing clothing and equipment for the students and mentors to utilise whilst participating in the program. We look forward to working with NSW Police in future and continuing to support this amazing program and its growth for years to come.
