Congratulations to Youth Council member Bella Derry on her new position with the Cobourg Youth in Policing Initiative
The Cobourg Police Service hosted a media event on March 19th to introduce the six students the police service has hired under the Youth in Policing Initiative. The Northumberland Youth Advisory Council’s member Bella Derry was one of the successful applicants.
The students, aged 15 – 17 years, are from Cobourg High Schools and are available for work after school and on the weekends.
The police service is paying the students an hourly rate with a nine hour per week limit. Police have reached out into the community securing work environments consistent with the goals of the initiative. Retirement homes, the library and the food bank, to mention a few.
The program is funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services and will provide the youths with an opportunity to learn valuable employment experience, exposure to general life skills and seeks to create opportunities for youth and police to build positive mentoring relationships.
