ZERO FEES Youth Programmes ZERO FEES Youth Programmes Young people need your help By NICOLA WILLIAMS Helping hand: Sergeant Dexter Traill is seeking socially conscious people to support young people. Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS Support people are wanted for young people being inter- viewed by police. District youth aid co- ordinator Dexter Traill says he is looking for new members for the police nomi- nated persons list. When young people are interviewed and there is no one available from their fam- ily to support them for one reason or another that's when we need socially conscious good citizens to support them when they are in need.'' The young person can nominate a family member, friend or teacher, but if no one is available the police need a pool of people to call on.The role was formed in 1989 when legislation under the Children and Young Per- son and Families Act made nominated persons a require- ment to ensure young people are treated fairly. A short training course will be held. Nominated people are called upon about once or twice a month. It's mentally demanding so we are looking for respon- sible people,'' Mr Traill says. You will be hearing some very serious matters so you will have to understand the privacy around that.'' Mr Traill says it's a rewarding role. They like the satisfac- tion of helping and doing a civil duty.'' Mr Traill says those brought to police attention aren't all bad people -- they often just make bad choices. Contact Mr Traill on 027-206-5887 or firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28.
