Supporting our first Responders

Our Youth Co-Responder team has made more than 5,000 engagements with young, at-risk locals as they work to intervene early and break the crime cycle.

The co-responder ream is a joint initiative between Queensland Police Service and the Department of Youth Justice, which brings together a police officer and a youth justice professional to proactively engage at-risk young people and their families and refer them to services to address the underlying issues contributing to their offending behaviour.

This is just one of many tools being used to reduce crime rates, but it’s one of the most effective. Everyone knows that prevention is better than cure and the police and youth justice workers that make up our local team are doing an excellent job.

It was great to have Police Minister Mark Ryan MP up recently to meet up with our local team.
